Tired of waiting for an invitation to upgrade our account, we have migrated to this new blog. Please update your links: the address is ledaserenesnewz1.blogspot.com.
I also want to remind you that all of our official websites are now .ca (instead of .com and .org) Thus:
This is because a malicious vandal stole our domain names back in June, and so we had to register new ones.
To celebrate our new blog and other winter cheer, here’s a clip from “Memory Places”, our LiteratureAlive Documentary on author Andre Alexis. This film won a Special Acknoledgement Award at the Festival of Black International Cinema 2006 in Berlin, Paris, and St Louis. The interviewer and co-director is Eugene Paramoer. The cinematographer was Natalie Haarhof (additional photography Kiarash Sadigh). The music is by Mauri Hall.
Here Andre talks about living in the Toronto neighbourhood of Parkdale, and how and why that influences his writing.
Parkdale is also the location of our feature film “A Winter Tale”.
Some of you may remember the day when the CSC (Canadian Society of Cinematographers) came on set to interview DP Kim Derko.
Kim is one of only 5 women cinematogaphers in the CSC, she’s a wonderful visual artist and the film is looking great!
“A Winter Tale” will be released in 2007.
