Ways to Connect

Another day at SXSW means less and less sleep for your author. Yesterday was another amazing day at the fest, as you would expect. I started off with a few panel discussions, workshops, and meetups. The best talk of the day was a panel discussion about American Experience's The Last Days of Vietnam which aired on PBS last year(If you just want to hear about celebrity sightings and movies skip down below the numbers). If you haven't seen the film you need to, it is one of the most powerful films about such a difficult time in the world.

SXSW is always a rush of people, bikes, buses, events, panels, discussions, and yes, some film. Day 1 started off with sliding in by the skin of my teeth to a panel discussion between Guillermo Del Toro(master of the macabre, director of Pacific Rim, Pan's Labyrinth) and Ryan Gosling(The Notebook, Drive). They were discussing Ryan Gosling's first feature directed film, "Lost River". One of the most interesting facts from the panel is that Del Toro and Gosling's friendship blossomed over a deep love for Disneyland.
