    I'm a documentary addict, and this is one of the best I've ever seen. And, on top of being a beautifully made film, the subject is one of my favorite photographers, Abelardo Morell. If your in the Boston area, I strongly encourage you to try to make it to the MFA for a viewing. Here are the details, from a promo postcard I picked up at the museum:

    Shadow of the House - Photographer Abelardo Morell
    a film by Allie Humenuk

    Sunday, November 30th at 12.15pm and
    Thursday, December 11th at 4.30 pm (Q+A to follow with the filmmaker)


    The quote on the postcard from Bo Smith, Director of the film program at the MFA is right on: "One of the best films I've seen on an artist and the artistic process."

    Just returned from MFA. I liked the film so much that I placed an order for the DVD from the web site. Highly recommended.
    Also, Abelardo himself participated in the Q+A. :smile:

    Great job Allie !!!!!!

    This looks like a good candidate for the VCP film series.

    Suzanne, would you drive to Brattleboro to see it?
