This might ruffle some feathers..

Lots going on on the film front! Tomorrow the site for the Leeds Film Festival goes live (Ms. Plants has bought me a pass!! - though it might be to get me out of the house and give her some peace..), so I'll be scanning the site constantly for a whiff of the film list.  Leeds typically doesn't disappoint.

And, news has also reached me that Nina Paley, who came to Leeds a few years back with her impressive film Sita Sings the Blues, is trying to get her latest one of the ground.  Currently, only a section of the ending has been released:

Given the sensitivities displayed right now by temple burning extremists, and communities unsure whether or not they are offended by JK Rowling's new effort, a cartoon depiction of all the centuries fighty-stabby that's gone on over the rights to the holy lands is a brave thing to be releasing.

So all power to her.  I can't wait to see the full thing.

Oh, and Sita Sings the Blues can now be viewed in it's entirety.
