Atlanta Film Festival

It's been awhile since we wrote to let you know what's going on. We're off to Atlanta today to kick off a crazy tour that will end in Japan. The Atlanta Film Festival started last night and we're off to a great start considering the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (the biggest paper there) picked ABDUCTION as one of its three favorites at the festival. Not a bad beginning. The film's been nominated in the festival's BEST DOCUMENTARY category. We'll arrive there tonight and will be at Sunday and Monday's screenings. Then we're off to Sydney, Australia where we'll show the film for the first time in that country. Jane Campion will be with us so it'll be very special. After a day and a half back in Washington, DC, we'll be off to Japan to show ABDUCTION for the first time in Tokyo. It's an invite-only affair with an impressive guest list that will include high-ranking government officials, cabinet ministers, celebrities and, of course, dozens of family members of people who've been kidnapped by North Korea, including the Yokota family. We'll try to do our best and keep you updated on how things are going. In the meantime, be sure to tell anyone you know about the Atlanta screenings:
