The film I told you about - Call and Response - has gone quite viral and might be an award winner. CNN are covering it. We are requesting our local theater show it as soon as they can. I just forwarded an email flyer to some of my friends who might not have seen it yet. Anyone seen it who wants to talk about it or leave a response in the comments below???????? Hello???????
ORIGINAL POST: "Call and Response: Go see this movie. Dammit!!
We enjoyed a special screening of Call and Response on Saturday night, at our special summit in Tahoe. Filmmaker Justin Dillon was there and talked about what he was thinking when he made this BRILLIANT film that opens around the country on October 10th in a limited number of cinemas. Its a GREAT film that tackles the subject of human trafficking in USA using music, story, and the philosophy of blues. It was the blues that I especially connected with and the wisdom of Dr Cornel West on the blues concept of call and response. Also good to see some well known celebrities speak up or sing out on human trafficking. Hope it does really well. Go see it, dammit!

Actually, what Justin has accomplished in bringing in so many artists around this cause reminded me of what Ry Cooder did with Buena Vista Social Club . . .but with a serious social conscience. Ok - now watch the trailer
