Cinco de Mayo is for kids

With a trip to Fukushima for filming on a new documentary and with filming/ editing on another new documentary here in Tokyo (more on that soon!), it has been a busy couple of weeks since returning from the US for screenings of 'A2-B-C' in Nebraska (INFO) and '-1287' in the Oregon (INFO).

After a wonderful dinner last night that was followed by traditional sweets for Children's Day, May 5, (PHOTO below, info about the sweets called "Chimaki" HERE), I am now at the airport. Again!

Over the past two years, I have had the honour of being invited to Taiwan several times to screen two of my films, 'A2-B-C' (2013) and '-1287' (2014).   I was last in Taiwan in the autumn for the Asian Premier of '-1287' (INFO) which was held in the Taiwan International Documentary Festival (TIDF). While the main festival is held in Taipei, TIDF also holds a touring festival throughout the year which travels to cities all over Taiwan.  I am honoured that '-1287' (WEBSITE) has been selected to screen in the touring festival and am grateful for the additional honour of being invited to attend some of the screenings, which will also provide an opportunity to visit more places outside of the capital.

The full list of screenings of '-1287', which run through August, can be found on the TIDF website HERE.

I will be hitting the ground running when I get home, with a press conference about the cancellation of screenings of 'A2-B-C' being held the day after I return (INFO), followed by three solid weeks of intensive editing on the new documentary.
