California Colloquium

For the past two days I have had the great honour of being a guest of the prestigious Pomona College in Claremont, California.  In addition to a breakfast meeting with film students, a class visit and an educational screening of my 2012 documentary 'In the Grey Zone' (WEBSITE), I had the honour of speaking about and presenting clips of my recent documentary 'A2-B-C' (WEBSITE) as part of the college's "Oldenborg Luncheon Colloquium".  The event was extremely well-attended, and the audience of students and faculty asked wonderful and challenging questions.

The Pomona College campus and buildings are gorgeous and the weather was perfect.  It was an honour to be invited here and an absolute joy to meet such engaging students and to share my work with them.  I am filled with gratitude.
"Let only the eager, thoughtful and reverent enter here."

The college guest house where I stayed was gorgeous!

This beautiful dining hall looks more like a church!
