Nota Bene

Heistbox (popularly known as Dropbox) has now permanently altered the accounts of its original users. (See my post, “Dropbox and the Snake Oil Sales Model of Tech Firms,” June 12, 2015). I think I have removed or updated all of my original Heistbox links; please write or tweet if you click somewhere and cannot get to the review or feature you would like to read. Thank you.

The last of my interviews for the Human Rights Watch Film Festival was just posted on Film Journal International's website: http://www.filmjournal.com/features/george-kurian-the-crossing-syrian-refugee-short-human-rights-watch-film-festival. This one is with George Kurian for The Crossing, a documentary short about a group of Syrians who had been living in Cairo, and decided to risk yet another emigration, this time to Italy. Links to my other filmmaker interviews appear below.
