Full movie posted on Wynton Marsalis's YouTube account:
In 1993 "Jazz (Six Syncopated Movements)" was premiered by the New York City Ballet. This collaboration featured an original composition by Wynton Marsalis and choreography by Peter Martins. This film produced by Sony Classical documents the process. The music was recorded and released as "Jump Start and Jazz"
Photographer Charles Ommanney drove nearly 2000 miles along the US-Mexico border from Brownsville, TX to San Diego, CA where he photographed and filmed the border fence, and gathered testimony from US citizens along the border. The result is a unique perspective on the immigration debate through a conceptual exploration of the economic, political, environmental, and humanitarian costs of the construction of this fence.

About 5 years ago, I attended a big event of a social media person that was Sara's farewell to Toronto and send-off to being married and living in London, UK. Somewhere around a month later, I saw a Tweet that had her back in Toronto, which gave me a bad feeling. It was a big deal when she left, but it was as if she was being up front about being back in the city, but at the same time, it seemed done very quietly, and there was no talk of her London adventure or nuptials. Some time later it came out that the engagement had been broken off. I only knew her from Twitter and this isn't really the media in which one asks someone personal questions. Some time later, after some banter on Twitter about something, I invited her to a lunch with my niece downtown. Said niece had just gotten a camera and wanted to learn how to use it. Sara joined us and it was a wonderful afternoon of conversation and photo taking. At some point, I asked how she was doing and she told me why she was back in Canada. It's taken 5 years for her to go public about abuse suffered at the hands of Philip Bloom and talk about why the engagement was broken. (And, yes, that Philip Bloom: filmmaker, camera reviewer, Kessler slider.)
I'm not on FaceBook, where the conversation broke and is ongoing, so I wanted to lend my support here. It's difficult to speak up in this situation in any case; speaking up against someone with a huge public presence, who is respected by many, is even more difficult.
, lifting a virtual glass of scotch: here's to honesty, bravery and to someone bold enough to pull off brilliant red hair and speak up about something so personal and difficult! ;)
