Tallgrass Film Festival

Posted on Updated on

One of the great beauties of the state of Kansas is the prarie grasses that grow along highways and when you’re lucky – in open fields.  Prarie grasses smell a little like hay – sweet, salty, and a little woody, all at the same time.  The sound of the wind blowing through them is a soft hello.  They are full of the subtlest color distinctions of greens and golds and everything in between.  They wave in the wind with a softness that beckons you to lay down in them and when you give in to that call, the reward is as cushy as a down comforter.  A little closer to the ground — but soft and cushy.

Kansas is where I grew up, as many of you know.  And so we are very proud to let you know that THREE-FIFTY will be in the Tallgrass Film Festival.  I can smell the grasses right now!  October 23-26 is the date and Wichita, Kansas is the place.

More love from France…

Remember CERN?

Posted on Updated on

Remember last year when THREE-FIFTY screened at CineGlobe which is a film festival put together by CERN physicists who screened the films in CineGlobe, a cinema which sits a-top the world’s largest particle accelerator?  Remember that???  Welll, it’s ok if you don’t remember, but you will want to know that they’re getting ready to turn that particle accelerator “on”.  Article, photos and video footage here:  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24525554

What is the point of the largest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider?  Quentin King, who does complicated things at CERN and who has become a friend of ours, says it gives physicists an opportunity to study subatomic particles in what will be the closest duplication of the beginning of our universe.  A recreation of the moments just after the “big bang” which will be the closest scientists have ever gotten to understanding the beginning of our universe and deeper understanding of the fundamentals that make up our universe.
Read about it and then let us know your thoughts.
We must confess, to have screened THREE-FIFTY atop the world’s largest particle accelerator is dang cool bragging rights.
