Listverse has another great list that I think is incredibly useful. What better way to end this year than to decide how you would respond to Agonizing Moral Dilemmas?
I personally feel that deciding on the answers will lead to better films, even a better world. But at the very least, it will give you some conversation fodder for the evening. Although do be careful: if people disagrees on a particularly issue, you may never see them in the same light again — even if it is now the true light that shines upon them now!
Today’s guest post is from filmmaker Peter Sillen. His documentary bio-portraits will be screening this week in NYC at the IFC.
Peter Sillen is a New York based documentary filmmaker. Working mainly in 16mm film, Sillen creates portraits of an array of individuals who live and work outside the stereotypical 9 to 5 environments. With a low-tech approach to documentary film and sensitivity to his subjects and their environment Sillen’s work gives an unobstructed view into the lives of a number of uniquely talented artists and trade workers.Tweet
Rainn gives back in a big way. I am a bit in awe in how generative and generous this man is. There’s a reason why he has over 2 million twitter followers and it’s not just because he’s really funny. He cares about things. He cares about people. He cares about process. He’s thoughtful. And he’s one of the folks I am thankful for getting to know in this past year.
BTW, if you haven’t encountered Brainpickings.org yet, stop delaying. It is where I found this vid and it is one of the best curated sites out there. Give yourself a gift for being so damn good this year and subscribe to their free weekly newsletter. It will make your new year even better.Tweet
