turn on the tv quick - rabbit proof fence
i spent the late morning watching one of my absolute favorite movies, rabbit-proof fence. i wrote quickly without much decoration to try to catch anyone who might want to see it at 330. now i'm to the after the fact edited edition to which i am adding a worthy youtube video
the movie rabbit-proof fence is a 2002 retelling of a true story of of the 1931 escape of three aboriginal girls from a boarding school and their 1000 mile trek courtesy of the rabbit-proof fence. american indians will make the obvious connection to their boarding schools. nonindians need not fear the underlying truths - the movie is beautiful and exciting and sad and wonderful.
here's some links and the promised video.
ifc on the movie:
a good trailer:
the schedule for future showings on ifc: monday, oct. 19 at 11:00 am edt; monday, oct. 19 at 4:05 pm edt; wednesday, oct. 28 at 7:35 am edt; wednesday, oct. 28 at 2:35 pm edt.
and last but not ... a beautiful 'tribute video which mixes still from the movie and peter gabriel soundtrack material.
