Who is watching who

I have spotted a documentary (de Meta & Fosa Show) made by my niece Marjolijn van Heemstra and her sister Anneloor van Heemstra amongst a creative team.

Well done, it was good fun watching this:
Now who says Television is dumb... maybe we should watch more who's in the audience rather than what's on stage.

Or not...

China by Plane 2007

The late-breaking news has reached my weblog.

Aileen and myself will be traveling through Mainland China from end of June 2007. Our account of this journey will be documented, as you can expect after having read my blog so faithfully in the last two years of its existence.

Shinju Matsuri

The Shinju Matsuri is the Festival of the Pearl.

It is held in Australia, Broome. (see http://www.shinjumatsuri.com/).

Broome's Festival of the Pearl, Shinju Matsuri, began over 35 years ago.

Handing out the meal.

The pearling industry thrived here, with up to 400 luggers fishing off the local shores. People from Japan, China, Malaysia and elsewhere were brought in to work the boats and dive for pearl shells. When the pearl harvests would finish, the traditional cultural festivities and celebrations would begin.

With the release of the film Shinju we will soon be celebrating the 'Festival of the Pearl' ourselves ;o)

NOTE: Shinju (from the Japanese 真珠 meaning pearl).

Shinju the movie recorded

On Saturday 5th of May we completed the film recording of my latest film Shinju (see http://shinjuthemovie.blogspot.com).

This film has been produced with the help and support of a great many people (and a spider).

Amongst them Waki, wife of my producer Nigel Smith. Below she is depicted in her Japanese kimono.

Her picture plays an important role in the story about Japanese dual love suicide; Shinju.
