I knew George Christensen in 2001 / 2002 - he worked at the film festivals & volunteered at Facets. But haven't seen him or heard of him for a while.

Wait, wow - that *was* 2001. It seems so 90's! Slow, awkward camera work & that music that keeps coming back!

The Reader did a story on George Christensen a couple years ago, mostly about his touring exploits. He recently returned from two months bicycling around South Africa, where he was attacked and knocked off his bike by two knife-wielding thugs. He writes about it at his blog--georgethecyclist.blogspot.com
