We had an amazing reception at the Global Peace Film Festival tonight. It was little daunting showing the film to a completely American audience and I must admit there were moments when I just closed my eyes and wanted to hide in the corner because of some of the "stronger" statements about America in the film which seem to go down well with a non American audience but could be sensitive to an American audience.
At the end of the film I was ready to be taken apart but to my surprise the reactions were to the contrary. People were taken very positively by the film and their feedback actually made me see the film in a different light, from an American point of view. Someone made the point that MY AMERICA is a film they would love to see at the cinemas in the US. The next screening is Saturday, which is promised to be bigger and better than tonight.
