Film Festival - Lemon Tree & Sock Progress

Tonights Film was Lemon Tree the story of a Palestinian widow whos lemon grove backs on to the new Israeli Minister for Defenses house. The Secret Service decide the trees must be culled to make it easy to defend. She challenges it and the story of the human erosion as this challenge is persued through the courts is well handled. Quiet beautiful and yet stark.

This film is a lovely piece that ends in line with its locale...but makes you ache for a reasonable solution to this problem.

Sock Progress - i finally finished the cuff...

Note: The New Apple store in Sydney has had the covers removed...and had some people setting up computers on the ground floor when I went past tonight. They are all wearing blue surgical shoe coverings so as not to mark the floor.
