I arrived yesterday to screen Eating Animals at the documentary festival here.
Last night I had dinnner with the festival directors and other film directors who have work here. I enjoyed speaking with Boris Mitic, who is showing his film, In Praise of Nothing. We talked about pickpocketing thieves and by end of dinner, he pocketed one of the festival director’s cellphone and my camera. He gave them back of course. At the table too was Czech director Helena Třeštíková who has a master class that I’m going to check out even if it’s being taught in a different language. She has 50 documentaries under her belt and is still standing.
