Sweetgrass @ Cinequest in San Jose tomorrow night

Hi Knitters,

Have you seen the preview for Sweetgrass? Sweetgrass is a documentary about shepherds in Montana driving their sheep from the winter pastures in the valley up to the sweet grass pastures in early spring. It's just gorgeous and anyone who likes a sheep will like this movie. Check out the trailer & see if you aren't in love!

This beautiful movie is showing tomorrow night as part of the annual San Jose film festival called Cinequest. I happened to see the trailer in a theater two weeks ago & put it on my "must see" list. I thought we were going to have to organize a trip up to Berkeley or SF in a couple months to see this, but Cinequest has two showings Sweetgrass at the Camera 12 Cinema in downtown San Jose --

In case you are interested in film in general - check out the whole festival, which opens TONIGHT and runs until March 7th. The festival preview article in the Mercury News last Thursday says there will be something like 100 films, many of them from other countries, many of them area or national premiers. It's a chance to be exposed to a LOT of great film. There are also many side events, like happy-hour type soiree gatherings before many of the evening events and lots of different tracks of films - drama, documentary, family-friendly, etc.

And let me plant this little thought... sending the Significant Other off to the movies is a great way to keep him or her busy while one is off gallivanting at Stitches West this coming weekend. They'll be so dazzled by exciting new films & star-sightings, they may not even notice the WEBS bags in the hallway on Sunday night.
