Sun And Celluloid: A Weekend In Palm Beach

user
  Do not pity (nor envy) this pale New Yorker as I leave the cool and rainy climes of my native Manhattan for the sunny paradise of Palm Beach, Florida. Late April brings with it the beginnings of steamy Florida weather, with its peekaboo of sun and clouds, where a torrential rainshower can happen one minute and the sun shining the next is not out of the ordinary. In this dramatic clime, the Palm Beach International Film Festival beckons with its film premieres, snazzy special eve...

Palm Beach: a Setting Known As Paradise

user
Palm Beach, Florida is more than a place, it is a destination. Synonymous with Florida's exotic beauty as well as a chic resort for the uber-wealthy for more than a century, Palm Beach, the island, and the surrounding county that also bears its name, is a place of wonderment that attracts tourists from all over the U.S. and points beyond. The attraction of being close to (if not a part of) the playground of the super-rich, the area has grown in the past few decades into a destination known for i...

Film In Focus in Palm Beach Fest: LA AMERICANA

user
The debate over immigration is the issue that never seems to go away. While it may flare hot, especially during this Presidential election year, the solutions to the problems of "illegals" is not a simple one. America has always been a refuge for those seeking economic, political and religious freedom. On the other hand, are "illegals" offering themselves as cheap alternatives to American workers, whose job security has become all the more tentative in a depressed economy. Adding to the debate o...

While I guess I am just one of the lucky ones. For my trip from New York to Fort Lauderdale to attend the Palm Beach International Film Festival, which opened last evening, I was fatefully booked on Airtran Airlines, instead of American Airlines, the mechanically challenged carrier that has been forced to cancel thousands of flights this week due to maintenance problems. Apparently, many U.S. and international guests were slated to fly in to Florida via American Airlines, which is the largest ai...
