almost daily report from DOXA 2018... indolent Spinster variety.
Here is my report i meant to do yesterday (well i filmed it yesterday after seeing the movie, but went to work right after, then kitty cat took up my attentions after work.. so here it is now, I saw one movie yesterday at DOXA: Mr. Gay Syria....
I am trying a new thing. As I have a pass to DOXA the documentary film festival that i worked at last year and the year before, as well as having been on the screening committee this year and last... I thought I would do what i failed to do last year which was make a video blog report as often as i could, talking about the films i see, and my experience of the festival.
Friday the 11th. saw Portraits XL Leon (with 3 short original series portraits from 20 years earlier.) by Alain Cavalier at DOXA, cinematheque. I sat too close, but don't care. it's my thing i do at DOXA, sit in the front row. Once again a charming thoughtful program. If you are missing DOXA this year, you are missing out.
Before the movie, i went downtown and had a few hours of nostalgia, eating at Taf's one of the joints that i first went to and met folks for drinks and food downtown when i first moved to the city in 1991. i went to a bookstore and bought my friend's new novel (Maureen Medved's Black Star.)
