He's her father. He didn't want her adopted. She probably would have had less emotional scars if her adoptive family had let her go four months in, rather than drag it on relentlessly. I think they're ridiculous for letting it drag on and on and on and on and on and...
Ugh I miss California.
So let me get this straight...you haven't gone to this event in the past because you are white, and thus weren't in the mailing circle? Really?
Are you implying that black people have rhythm? I was laughing pretty hard by the third paragraph.
You were the ONLY WHITE PEOPLE...wow. This is freakin ridiculous.
Why not write an article about cultural diversity, and include all the events in the area that promote it? Cultural awareness? Let go of your history and maybe Charleston can move forward into the 21st century. Basically, if you continue to hang on to the stereotypes then they will continue to exist.
2012 is a lackluster year in film? Really? REALLY? Thank goodness Ted was there to help the Avengers, Spider-Man, Batman, and even Wes Anderson pull this summer out of the abyss. Also, thank goodness we didn't have to hate another wet rag. Hmmmmm, me thinks I smell a rat.
I read your article...apparently you have not learned how to use google. Open Google type Benh Zeitlin. Click the first link, and tahdah, your homework is done. But since you probably wrote this article on the back of a napkin with a dull #2, I googled for you. Tahdah. His parents run a non profit called City Lore in New York. "City Lore documents, presents, and advocates for grassroots cultures to ensure their living legacy in stories, histories, places, and traditions." Also, he was in a bad car accident and was uninsured. Friends collected money to help him pay his medical bills. Yep, rich kids have to do that all the time. Actually, those filmmakers you referenced were experimental, but quite innovative. Also, regardless of your take on the movie, the acting was inspiring. Quvenzhané Wallis is a force on camera, and I could not believe she was only six. Dwight Henry was also phenomenal. Zeitlin's work is refreshing and beautiful. If I were just going to jostle about with crazy notions I had pulled out of my nethers, I would speculate that you are a postulating movie snob who has watched one too many Wes Anderson films for his own good. But then I would be skipping that whole research thing. Eh, how about a joke? Lena Dunham, her useless degree, and Woody Allen walk into a bar.
