Cinema Cinema and more Cinema

Posted on Apr 27, 2010

I have been immersing myself into the world of film by going to the 53rd San Francisco International Film Festival. I have been a film buff since I was a kid (I have to thank my mom for my exposure to movies!). So I’m thrilled to have checked out the opening night screening of the delightfully wacky French film “Micmacs”, attended a discussion with this year’s Oscar winner for best song, T-Bone Burnett sharing his experience about making music for film and going to see new Latin cinema such as the poetic Columbian film “The Wind Journeys” and the revealing documentary about the tragic fall of iconic Brazilian entertainer Wilson Simonal. I’m looking forward to going to a tribute to the great filmmaker/director Walter Salles who directed the oscar winning “Central Station” and the sensational “The Motorcycle Diaries”.
