I've been busy for the last three months. In addition to my work with the Chicago International Film Festival, I've been churning out stories for several places: some old haunts of mine, some brand-new. Consider this my most up-to-date work portfolio.
Chicagoans: I hope you're all making plans to attend the Chicago International Film Festival (and that you've all picked up one of my fabulous schedule guides being distributed all over town). If you don't know what you want to see, why not take the chance to watch me interview a director onstage?
This is an important step for any film critic, but a first for me: conducting live, one-on-one Q&As for a crowd, and moderating a post-screening audience discussion. Stop by and ask good questions. (And the movies we'll be talking about are excellent, anyway.) Here's my schedule, which strangely includes a lot of films from the Middle East. Descriptions come from the schedule book.
You can follow the links or call 312.683.0121 to purchase tickets, or avoid the surcharge and get them at the door. See you at the movies!
