Profit Motive and the Whispering Wind
By the way, my favourite film at the film festival - or the only one to compete with Man on Land - was Profit Motive and the Whispering Wind, a richly cinematic poem to accompany Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States. There's an online CinemaScope interview with the director, John Gianvito, here. I seem to really value quiet cinema lately - Old Joy, my favourite film from last year, was also very, very quiet.
