La La La, I'm a Filmmaker
Without going into it, the film project was frustrating and silly. It was super good to see the folks in the South, horribly sad and painful to see all the destruction there. It also made me furious and twitchy to see all the stupid mismanagement of camps, organizations, aid supplies, work, and generall y everything.
I became positively manic with a week's worth of talking to displaced and frustrated and depressed people--will write more about it soon but now I'm off for an afternoon of extremely crucial logistical work around Colombo: buying t-shirts and arranging for on-the-fly logosplashing for the maiden voyage of Volunteer Sri Lanka's field team. They're out to help assess some telecenter projects going into IDP camps. Go them!
It's been a rollercoaster. Keep them emails coming. More later. Love to all.
