Blog post written by Amber Thibault, Cinema and Photography ’15, FLEFF Intern, Lewiston, Maine.
With FLEFF just around the corner, it's time to take a look at some of the events I'm looking forward to. I hope you find some that interest you.
: This is going to be arguably the most exciting part of FLEFF. I am thoroughly excited, not just because I took band all through high school and can't help enjoying the complexity of classical music, but because the amount of energy in this piece lends itself to a thrilling presentation. Come join in this wild celebration of youth rebellion. It's going to be a blast!
AKA Doc Pomus
with filmmaker Peter Miller
: Why? Because I love music. Especially music from the past. It's really the trailer that caught my eye because I love stories of people and this film is a sort of behind the scenes look that you don't usually get about artists because they are busy telling other people's stories.
Food Sovereignty and the Global Hunger Games with Dr. Philip McMichael
: Finally, I am looking for to this. Partly because when I first heard about it I thought about my mother. She loves to cook! I thought it was cool that this combined both of our passions: her love of food and mine of films. I'm also interested to take a sociological look at the causes of global hunger because I recently did a paper where I came to the conclusion that malnourishment is one of the leading causes of a global lack of health.
