Bringing the world together through the power of film.

Watching 2006 TED Prize winner Jehane Noujaim share her wish for the world with such passion sends goosebumps down my spine. It’s the 2nd time I’ve seen this video and I still feel moved.

Was super excited that she was scheduled to speak at Northwestern tonight about Speaking With a Lens. I found her film Control Room remarkable and was really looking forward to meeting her. Very bummed out that the Iceland Volcano ash cloud has prevented her from flying to the US. McSA, I really hope you’ll find a way to reschedule this.

**Update** They did reschedule it! Woohoo! Just got back from the event where Jehane so kindly agreed to be interviewed for the next episode of Media Impact Spotlight! Look out for it soon! Thank you, Jehane for a wonderful talk. It clearly inspired many in the room. And thank you, McSA, for organizing this. Looking forward to more great events in future. :)
