Searching for Sugar Man - Tribeca, New York

Being at the Tribeca Film Festival for Searching for Sugar Man was a trip. And, at the risk of sounding desperately name-drop-ish, we were absolutely starstruck when we spotted Michael Moore in the audience. He stayed to chat to us specifically. What an approachable, down-to-earth, sweet, awesome and genuinely humble person. 

Here is a short photo-essay of the whirl-wind 36 hours we spent devouring as much as we could... of the big apple.

Off to New York for the Tribeca Film Festival - that city is such a tonic. I am sure there will be plenty of eye-openers. Coming soon to a blog near you.

In the meantime, I leave you with this...
