Film Festival

As some of you may know, I have abandoned Brooklyn to move back to the Bay Area because the recession is kicking my delicate butt. So, here’s a poster I noticed in Gordo’s this evening. It piqued my interest because I am quite partial to women becoming a significant force in the film world (Go […]
