“The movie is about the simplest of human pleasures: The desire to get away for a few days, to play instead of work, to breathe in the sea air, and maybe meet someone nice. It is about the hope that underlies all vacations, and the sadness that ends them. And it is amused, too, that we go about our days so intently, while the sea and the sky go about theirs.” Roger Ebert on Jacques Tati’s Mr. Hulot’s Holiday.

Support World AIDS Day: Constellation and (RED) present The Carrier -
As many may know, my film THE CARRIER , which will be playing in two one night only showings on Constellation.tv/carrier with proceeds going to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa, also tells a very simple and poignant story. It is the story of one helplessly determined and HIV positive woman, living in the middle of rural Zambia, who becomes pregnant and will do literally anything to protect her baby from AIDS. At the same time it’s also meant to be a metaphor for all the extraordinary potential we now hold, to achieve an AIDS Free world for all our children. So I hope that everyone who reads this blog might take a moment click here and purchase a $6.99 ticket to watch THE CARRIER on December 1st (Watch trailer here). I also hope you’ll join us in celebrating this truly inspiring moment by supporting (RED)’s current campaign that focuses on virtually eliminating the transmission of HIV from moms to their babies by 2015.
