I’ve known Matt Palmer since Pay Dirt, his documentary about about Alberta Oil Sands, and my documentary about Long Hair were screened at the 2005 Calgary International Film Festival. So it is my great pleasure that Matt agreed to chat with me about his new film Letters from Litein (click here for full screen video of our chat). You can check out some more info here (with a great magazine article) (screening Sep. 21, 6:30 pm, Uptown – Downstairs).
I look forward to watching the film on the big screen and meeting some of the elementary school children featured in the film. In a world where I worry if the young generation care about anyone else but themselves, seeing these Calgary kids’ actions and results give me hope.
