That ridiculous picture to the left is me walking the stairs at the Cannes Film Festival. ::giggle:: I came to Cannes to give a keynote about youth and their engagement with film and new media. In return, i got tickets to the opening night of the festival, including a short by David Lynch and the premier of My Blueberry Nights (a Kar Wai Wong film starring Jude Law and Norah Jones and Natalie Portman and others). So i had to get all dressed up and walk the red carpet. Thank goodness for the SF designer Miranda Caroligne being so kind as to make me a dress for the adventure. It was walking remix! Totally purrrfect!
Following the premier, i got to go schmooze at dinner with a bunch of folks that i’m sure i’m supposed to know but am dreadful at recognizing. I’m currently back in my hotel giving my feet a rest before running off to a post-party party (sponsored by Louis Vuitton of all people). This whole thing is quite absurd. The glitz, the glam, the gawkers. I feel *way* out of place, but it’s a fascinating ethnographic adventure. Still, no one can believe that i don’t know who this that or the other person is. Doo dee doo.
More later… just thought folks (like my mom) would enjoy the pics!
