Cool news

This isn't about linguistics. I'm not sure how many have clicked on the sidebar link to Behind Forgotten Eyes. The link is promotional page for a documentary about the Korean "comfort women" who were forced into sexual slavery during World War II.

Buffy's good friend Tony Gilmore directed the film, which has for some time been listed on IMDb without distribution information. Yoon-jin Kim narrates the film (Casey, you know her from Lost) and I just read that Horizon has agreed to distribute the film. It will be shown at the Cannes Film Festival.

This is very exciting news. To provide a face to accompany the name dropping I offer this picture of our New Year's Eve 2004 dinner with Tony and his (now) wife Mayu, and Daniel.
