Had a wonderful screening last night. It was the type of screening where people laughed at the right time, leaned forward in anticipation at the right time, and jumped just a little when they were supposed to. It's amazing how you can feel the energy of the audience and how they are as much a part of the film as the film itself. Despite some hand washing and screening room maintenance during the film, it felt like something profound was happening. It re-invigorated us and made us remember what all that work was for. So, if you were there thank you for allowing us to see the beauty in it once again.
