One thought on “Select Interviews”

  1. Hey Sean,

    It’s Marc, the director of SALAWATI. I couldn’t find an e-mail address for you, so I thought I’d get in touch this way.

    It was really nice meeting you. I really hope to be back at SIFF for my next film. I happened on your column and appreciate the mention in your final paragraph. It was a great way for me to end the festival–my first–too.

    All the best,
