First film



Just a quick note about the documentary Restrepo which I saw last night at the Eccles. It was the film's world premiere. Directed by a couple of veteran journalists from Vanity Fair who lived with and documented their subjects for a whole year. The film brought you up close and personal with a platoon at the deadliest valley in Afghanistan. You lived through their constant, terrifying and at times deadly fights with the often unseen enemy, you got to know their fears and their dreams, you were swept away into their special camaraderie, you learned to respect their skills and their tenacity, and you asked yourself why, why, why are they there...

The house was full (it seats 1,300), with people like Michael Moore in the audience...and everyone stayed for the Q&A. Sundance new festival director John Cooper remarked that this was the biggest audience Sundance has had for a documentary...

Co-executive produced by National Geographic I know the film will have television broadcast. We'll see if it will have theatrical release as well. I wish the film luck.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
