“It’s like the first time having sex…but better!” Hearing a comment like that when you’re sitting in a pitch black room with five new friends who are hand-developing their very first roll of Super 8 is the moment you know you’ve done your job right! And when someone else says “Thanks for the emotions!” after hanging that roll of film up on the line to dry and taking a close up peek at it with the loup, well, that’s just the cherry on top.
Where can one go from here? How about a CEC Family dinner at the magical abode of Susan and Petr and Leila and Lucas? I don’t think I’ve been in a home so bursting with art, ideas and rapid-fire conversation in my entire life! From capitalist maps to sexist pants, from Peter the Great’s Kunstkamera to the arctic doctor who faked his own appendectomy, from Uzbekistan to Oaxaca, the intellectual feast was as tasty as the delicious meal on the table. Спасибо большое!
