Almost six months ago I attended the Sundance Film Festival in Park City. Due to some health issues I couldn’t do the reviews I wanted to do about the Festival until now. People have asked me what were your favourite films at the Festival?

Strangely in Love – Q&A

This site will be going on a mini-hiatus.
I’ve got some reviews which will be queued up between now and when I leave for my USA trip on January 13.
Come January 21, check out the site as I will be at the Sundance Film Festival spending time watching some films. So I’ll post daily updates of the films as the Festival is on here during January 21-31.

Hush is a documentary on abortion directed by Punam Gill. Unlike previous documentaries on the topic, this one states from the beginning, how there are two sides to the argument, pro-life and pro-choice.
