    Hey Kempton,

    You do have a packed schedule there but I wish there was a possibility that you could have seen Le Quattro Volte, which is an absolutely breath-taking film. Also, I am glad to see you continue to do these CIFF interviews and post them.

    Thanks a lot for this. Very valuable.
