|Paul chats with Isabella Rossellini at the Sundance Director's Brunch.|
We've had a pretty fantastic time of it here in Park City. We've hobnobbed with accomplished filmmakers (Steve James, Morgan Neville, Robert Redford), had some wonderful screenings of our doc, received some great reviews and been generally fussed over. One special highlight was meeting Isabella Rossellini at the Director's Brunch. She is such an elegant, friendly and warm person. She talked with us about our documentary and shared some stories about her project (see link below). The perfect moment was punctuated with her beautiful two-handed handshake. What an intimate moment.
We were one of the few to get a moment with Robert Redford. The Director's Brunch was jammed. He stopped to speak with Peter Golub, our composer. Peter introduced us to Mr. Redford who said he knew of our film and had heard great things. We gave him one of our very popular buttons that say, "I Love the Movies!" (previously we had given one to Trevor Groth, head Sundance programmer who wore it all day).
