Highbrow for The LANALOGUE: steal a pencil

LANALOGGER Margrit Polak writes

"IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT YET, THE DOCUMENTARY ABOUT MY MOM AND DAD will be on Public Television later this month!!!! Independent Lens, the PBS documentary series, will air STEAL A PENCIL FOR ME, in most markets, on May 26th. See the link below for your local listing. The film has been shortened to one hour (from 94 minutes) for PBS but for those of you that haven’t seen it, please take this opportunity to either set your TEVO or sit and watch. This film has been a completely wonderful experience for my parents, now 96 and 86. They are enjoying far more than 15 minutes of fame, and my friend. Oscar Nominee Michele Ohayon , who directed the film, did a truly extraordinary job. Based on the compilation of their love letters from World War II, the movie is the story of their love, still alive sixty-plus years later! Please tell your friends…."

Pretty cool. A little more highbrow than Uncle Donny's House, but probably just as good in a differnt way. Our more cultured readers should check it out.
