The last screening `Clay Bird' was attended by about 10 members who enjoyed the Bangladesh made film significantly. It was nice to see old faces after about 2 months lapse of screening. Some shorts from my Bangladesh trip were screened before the main feature's screening. For a number of reasons the next screenings will be done 3 weeks from the last one ie on Mar 1st-apologies for inconveniences.
Next screening: `Fast Food Nation'(2006, USA/UK)
Date; Mar 1st (Sunday)
Venue: 62 Weld Quay, Penang
Intro: The film started by raising the dramatic question: are we eating some real bull shit in the burgers from the fast food joints? The ensuing drama led us through heart wrenching stories of the Mexican foreign workers who work in American slaughter house, and funny episodes, including one which involved a students group who tried in vain to liberate the cows from their sheds.
