Film Fest '09 + Comment

Just a quick update on the Edinburgh Film Festival. I saw Los Ultimos Heroes de la Peninsula last night and am seeing The Hurt Locker tonight (super excited about this film!).

I also had a really interesting conversation with an Iranian friend last night about the current upheaval in his home country. He commented that things that waste our time in the west (i.e. blogging, facebook, twitter) are means of protest and freedom in the east. These forms of media are tools that fight oppression. What an interesting insight.
