mali ficos non vendemus.

In which we wax poetic, make glittering generalities, judge and are judged, and all that jazz.

Name:Alison B

Alison was born and raised in the seaside city of Port Elizabeth in South Africa. Showing her leadership qualities even in her youth, she was Head Girl of Collegiate High School for Girls in 1985. Alison grew up in Basildon and left school at sixteen largely unqualified. She spent time as a shop worker before embarking on a piano tuning course which she had to abort in the second year as the single, Only You, became a worldwide hit. Alison achieved an international reputation as a banjo player by pushing the instrument out of its familiar Appalachian settings and into new musical territory. Alison became the 1993 recipient of the Dorothea Lange Award in documentary photography for her photographs of child labor in Asia. Since then, she has lived with exiled Tibetans in Nepal and India for over a decade, recording their culture and the challenges which exile has brought.

the marathon of viewing has been runneth

Yesterday was the final day for film festival screening. I am pretty dang satisfied with most of my faves having made it. The faves that didn't weren't truly faves anyway, I guess. Stay tuned for my recommendations as to which festival days to attend - and which to avoid. (But it ended up being a good mix so none should be toooo bad.)
