Girl crushes and [left] film festivals

Girl Crush:
Suheir Hammad, poet, author, activist, recently an actress, owner of impeccable bone structure and person whose got me love dancing.

[left] Film Festivals:
Mark your calendars because on September 26th to October 2nd, the 2nd annual Toronto Palestine Film Festival (TPFF) will be taking place. Unlike the service at some of our fast food restaurants around the country, and the tiresome Hollywood stereotypes of A-rabs, these movies are GREAT. So come by to TPFF and enjoy awesome movies and Middle-Eastern hospitality, the right way.

Hany Abu-Assad released this short film (below) a few months ago. It is a segment in the Stories on Human Rights series. Hany is a director who has come a long way since the flop "Rana's Wedding" with the beautiful "Paradise Now". He contiues the great cinematography work from Paradise Now with this funny short film.
