>Best so far

>I think yesterday’s screening- Sunday 3:30pm at NFT 2- was the best AMIGO screening so far. The theater was packed and I did the intro because John was off doing press at the Directors Tea. That was fun for me since I know John’s rap by now. Our respectful hosts tend to use words like “sadly” and “tragic” and I like to lift the tone with words like “sunshine” and “beautiful”. With this movie, it’s all about context.

When we returned for the Q+A, almost nobody left and the questions were the best ever. A Filipino guy named Riley (he’s from Cebu!) stood and spoke, warmly endorsing AMIGO and in a pretty long exchange with John, told the audience a lot about the neglected history of the Philipppines from a Filipino’s point-of-view.

It’s so important for us with AMIGO to hear from Filipinos because Filipinos understand AMIGO like no one else. Thanks, Riley, for standing up (it’s not easy!) in a crowd. Write to us on this blog or on Amigo Facebook, will you? I’d like more people to hear what you have to say about AMIGO. Thank you, BFI/LFF, from John, me, and AMIGO.
