BEIJING – Oliver Stone caused embarrassment, a little outrage and a fair helping of delight at the Beijing International Film Festival when the Platoon director urged Chinese filmmakers to deal with controversial historical issues such as the painful legacy of the country’s founder Mao Zedong and the Cultural Revolution he unleashed half a century ago.

Just supported a secret sci-fi short film starring 艾未未 Ai Wei Wei (shot by Christopher Doyle • 杜可風)! Check it out! And it should be fun to watch!

Thanks +LiveTalksLA for posting one of the most fun and fascinating chat Michael Lewis has done in promoting his book "Flash Boys". The way Malcolm Gladwell opened the talk was a ton of fun and immediately put a big smile on my face!
Thanks Ted for posting the video and hosting this and other talks!

Great to see what James Cameron has to say about current 3D technology. And he is one fascinating engineer/scientist even he may not have the pieces of papers that said he went to school to study those subjects!

You gotta love it when an assumption that has been held for so long by so many people turns out not to be the case. Up until now, the conventional Hollywood wisdom has been that films featuring women stars in prominent roles simply don't perform as well as those with men leading the cast. However, a close look at the numbers indicates not only is that probably not so, but that the opposite might actually be true.

Story

Documentarian / Independent Reporter / Consultant / Computer Scientist
Introduction

For the ten years from 1991 - 2001, Kempton was involved in two of the largest safety & mission critical software projects in Canada: Canadian Automated Air Traffic System for Transport Canada, and then Iris Digital Communications System for the Canadian Department of National Defence.

For the ten years from 2001 - 2011, Kempton recharged his battery by getting an MBA, made a nationally archived feature-length documentary, and has been taking different paths in trying to be good in things that interested him.

Bragging rights
Kempton's first feature-length documentary Long Hair Revolution (2005) is preserved in Library and Archives Canada's permanent collection "for the benefit of present and future generations".
