Jim Browne shared this notice that I think is worthy of everyone's attention.
The film I produced, FIRE UNDER THE SNOW, will have its Bay Area premiere as part of the Mill Valley Film Festival(Oct 2-12, 2008). I will be present for both screenings, Oct 5 & 9. Hope you can make it out to the show.
Best, Jim Browne
BAY AREA PREMIERE of FIRE UNDER THE SNOW
2008, 75. min.Directed by Makoto Sasa http://www.fireunderthesnow.comhttp://www.argotpictures.com/
The Venerable Palden Gyatso, a Buddhist monk since childhood, was arrested by the Chinese Communist Army in 1959. He spent 33 years in prison for the 'crime' of demonstrating peacefully. He was starved and tortured. His nation and culture were destroyed, his teachers, friends and family displaced, jailed or killed under Chinese occupation. Despite this, he remains unbroken, and keeps the flame of his spirit ablaze.
