Ashley, thank you for writing about our documentary! Appreciate it!
As a former member of the Idaho Commission on Women’s Programs, I strongly support the efforts of the Friends of the United Nations Population Fund ("UNFPA") in its world wide efforts to foster the individual independence and educational opportunities of women and to improve their access to family planning services. However, for film-maker Goldwyn to exclaim "surprise" at having her festival request for funding from the Sun Valley City Council turned down for being a partisan political event is disingenuous. Worse still, serves only to damage the mission of UNFPA, which faces real and relevant political obstacles as it is, without the infusion of such needless political controversy. It would seem that Goldwyn, a self described "reformed sitcom writer" and ex-wife of Samuel Goldwyn, Jr., is using this festival to burnish her own career rather than thoughtfully enhancing the purposes of UNFPA of which she is an emeritus member.
Anita Hill, the victim, should be on the Supreme Court, not Clarence Thomas, the perpetrator. Go Figure.
Honestly, does the legislature have time to consider this with all the time tidying up the state? Why we had to be sure concealed weapons holders packed pistols on Idaho campuses, be sure Holsteins, Jersey and Gurnsey cows were being beaten in private, and fund the anti-gay marriage law fund.
Let's give these guys and homophobe Butch Otter a break. They're exhausted.
All truths about the legislature and wealthy rancher Butch Otter aside, supporting the Idaho film industry could only help Idaho. It is a great, clean industry. Everybody loves movies. Be sure to follow the history of Idaho Cinema and Nell Shipman with movie clips at Youtube. Astonishing.
Occasionally, I see a scene in a movie shot in Idaho. But, it seems many other states have just gotten in line first with their aggressive film board promotion.
Promotion of Idaho films is critical and could include major production as well as the independent film documentary. Idaho Public TV is a great resource for much of my own information about Idaho, and could be expanded. Student programs in public schools and universities could be fully expanded with funding.
Idaho, home of the Sun Valley Serenade!
PS: by the way, our legislators are not as exhausted as I portrayed. They sometimes use canned legislation provided by the ultra right legislation mill organization, ALEC.
PSPS: I've heard there is an underground railroad now for Gurnsey cows seeking to get out of Idaho, but I don't know it that is true.
PSPSPS: watch a movie for life change
still not a ginger
And the winner is Matthew McConnaughey for Dallas Social Club... check it out!!
I always though he was a weird man. When he went through a divorce and had a relationship with his adopted daughter was that last time I even cared about watching any of his movies. He is a sick sick man.
Anything Christian Bale is in is worth seeing!
I bet this is Ron's "pick for next time."
Hate speech is never free. Someone always pays for it.
Freedom of speech guarantees the government cannot jail you for what you say. It does not guarantee freedom from consequences. I would have thought that constitutional experts such as Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal and Ted Cruz would all know that.
This has nothing to do with FREE speech, it's all about HATE speech.
I suppose we can put ol’ Phil up on a cross now and stick a spear in him since he’s the new martyr for the Christian Right. Last year, it was the Chick-Fil-A Chicken being branded as the new saint of Christianity for standing up for all that is Holy Matrimony in the eyes of the Church. These folks want to be on the wrong side of history with their public criticism of homosexuality but cry fowl (pardon the pun) when their own bigotry is examined in a public light. Phil’s licking his fingers at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/08…
This wasn't a meeting wih sealers ... this was Pam grandstanding to get publicity
Killing a seal is the same thing as killing any other wild animal. I don't understand how come people are still listening to activists like Anderson. Simply ridiculous how humans don't use there common sense!
Plus, I haven't herd about activist giving money to stop killing baby veals and lambs... probably because they would look dumb! and it wouldn't make them raise millions! BTW no one kills white baby seals since decades!!!!
It's a dying industry Mrs Anderson... Because YOU KILLED IT. HOW F%$?&NG ARROGANT ARE YOU? Sitting on a personal fortune amount around 335 MILLON DOLLARS, you prentend to be charitable giving scraps (about 165$ per sealer) to people YOU bankrupted!!!!!!!
You are the barbarian! You are inhumane! I hate you!
Saw it last weekend. It's a solid film, but no need to see it right away. It's a good rental.
Straight up can't take you seriously because of the title.
Since you seem to have no knowledge of what bipolar disorder is, I automatically you assume you have no knowledge of the United States' policies regarding the middle east.
Cable-One and probably many other companies have been putting ads right in the middle of TV shows in addition to the standard ones we have been putting up with for years. Why are we paying for television and still have ads? Why are we now even getting ads popping up in the middle of the show we are watching, on the bottom or side of the screen?
I for one am canceling my Cable-One account, and going to start using MythTV to record my shows from broadcast TV. There I can have it automatically skip ads when it records.
How does it go?....The controllers always let the public know what they're going to do next?
Well here's yet another instance of that.
Iran is next. It's the next big prize.
Is there anyone left that doesn't know this?
Got to get the Persians locked into the Central Bank Cartel.
But the sheep must be made to believe it's just for their safety and protection.
And Pre-Crime Prevention is the contrived alleged reason.
These days that's all that's needed to silence the masses and keep the agenda on target.
Got to whip 'em up to a fever pitch for war.
For the Fatherland....er....the Homeland
I will see the film and decide for myself, but I have read reviews that state that the script is a bit flimsy, but the acting is awesome.
