Monday, Nov. 24, 2008: Our fantastic sales agent Jan Röfekamp from Films Transit International, Inc. invited all his filmmakers to a lovely dinner tonight. It’s a great way to get to know the other filmmakers Jan represents. Direct Cinema pioneer Robert Drew was to be the guest of honor, but his wife Anne fell ill and the two had to suddenly return to New York. Bummer!
But we had other entertainment for the evening: I thought my chair was a bit wobbly, but didn’t think too much of it until I crashed onto the floor sometime before dessert arrived. The waiter assured us it happens all the time – bad chair design!
