Every cut is a lie. It’s never that way. Those two shots were never next to each other in time that way. But you’re telling a lie in order to tell the truth. –Wolf Koenig.

It has been a busy and productive summer for Foreign Puzzle. We filmed a  lot, applied to a few grants, reached out to organizations/individuals to build partnerships, launched a website – and got on twitter –@foreignpuzzle

Production Still - "MIJO (My Son)

Jorge Faz and I edited a 10 minute sample reel early this summer. Initially, the sample reel was used to reach out to potential funders and grants. Eventually, the sample got tighter and tighter and evolved into a short film, a special vignette of our documentary “Foreign Puzzle”.

The short film is titled: “MIJO (My Son). It is an evocative portrayal of a mother and child’s intimate relationship in the midst of life altering medical events. “MIJO” is a finalist in the BreastFest 2011 Short Film Competition. VOTE FOR MIJO HERE.. For instructions on how to vote – CLICK HERE

Besides, getting selected for an online contest, Foreign Puzzle received a grant this summer. Dance Film Associations (DFA) awards a few post production grants every year for films that explore dance, dancer and or choreography for camera. I am pleased to announce that Foreign Puzzle is one of the recipients of DFA’s 2011 Post Production grant. Real Talkies congratulates Christoph Dostal (Film: BOB CURTIS: Dancing all colors) and Daniele Wilmouth (Film: Marching Banned), the other two recipients.
