Gale force winds met us as we approached the airport. You could literally hear and feel the plane bending. That was by far the bumpiest landing I’ve had in a long while.
Diarah N’Daw-Spech, the festival director, picked me up at the airport. It was well after midnight! On the drive to the hotel, she told me about some exciting NY press interest in our film. We’ll have to see where that goes…
I checked into my room at Columbia University Teachers College – nice setup, and very centrally located.
