Simon Fell > Its just code > Bay Area Black Gold

Friday, October 13, 2006

We went to see Black Gold at the weekend at the Mill Valley Film Festival, it was only in a pretty small hall, but had a good turn out, and seemed to get a good response. There was a lady from Oxfam there at the end and there was a short but interesting Q&A session that covered fair trade certification, farming susidies and other issues. It made me just a sad and angry as the first time I saw it, if you haven't seen it yet, you've got to go see it, no its not optional, for the bay area folks you still have chance, its showing again this sunday as part of the Mill Valley Film Festival, and will be showing in November at the Roxie in San Franciso.
