SLAMDANCE LOG 4

The day after the second and final screening and we're feeling pretty good. We've earned some diehard fans who are now making it their personal mission to tell everyone they can about the film. Last night's screening was overflowing and included a lot of big wigs from the film industry. We are now talking to them about the future of this film. It helped that half the audience was sobbing throughout a good portion of the film. The Q and A afterwards was excellent and we actually had to cut it off even though people continued to ask questions afterwards. Patty had a talk with Darryl Hannah (yes, the one-eyed assassin from KILL BILL) about the film and she seemed genuinely interested. We also ran into Helena Christensen, the former Supermodel, and told her all about it too. The audience reviews have been excellent and we're now getting reports from friends in Japan that reviews of this film are all over the place. We can now relax a little and actually see some films (imagine that!) since there are some great ones at Slamdance this year. In fact, it's now as hard to get into many Slamdance films as it is getting into Sundance films.

Hello,
At first, thank you for making this film for Megumi.
I read about your film via Japanese papers and was interested to see how
audience reacted after second screening.
Great to hear Darryl Hanna seemed interested in. I like her, I hope she would
get involved with this issue. But more important, the audience is now making it to their mission to spread about this film. Word of mouth,it has such a power. Hope many people would know this in the USA and to fight for not only Yokota family, but for all the people who got abducted
by North Korea. I am hoping that your film will be open for through out the USA
then to the world.
I will be checking here often, and once again, thank you for your great works. The best of luck!

Hi, I am a Japanese housewife, writing this from Tokyo.
I read the news about your film and found your website, which lead me to this blog.
The film seems to be really interesting. (Congratulations on the great outcome at Slamdance!)
I hope we, Japanese, will have a chance to see it, so that we'll understand more about the subject.

We look forward to seeing it here in Tokyo!!

Congratulations on winning the Audience Sparky Award!
I am a Japanese citizen who is deeply concerned about this tragic abuse on Megumi Yokota and other innocent people from South Korea, China (Macau), Thailand, Lebanon, Japan, and (at least) several other countries. I believe this recognition on your masterpiece will direct attention of the people of the world to Kim Jon-Il dynasty's unforgivable crime, so that all abductees will be rescued from the criminal tyrant regime in North Korea. I most deeply appreciate your long-term dedication on this film, out of your genuine sense of fair compassion on the victims and their families.
Hope we can see the film in Japan, as well as many other countries of the world.
Again, thank you very very much and congratulations on you!
