Emily Shackleton later recorded: “The only comment he made to me about not reaching the Pole was ‘a live donkey is better than a dead lion, isn’t it?’ and I said ‘Yes darling, as far as I am concerned.”
My trip to the lake district after my whirlwind tour of Sundance, LA, and Berlin was just what the doctor ordered. Keswick Film Festival was a beautiful friendly festival and I saw some brilliant films I normally wouldn’t get a chance to see, like Dukhtar and My Love, Don’t Cross that River. Thank you very much Angela Jackson (on stage in a beautiful fur hat introducing Dukhtar below).
I can’t help but have pure calm zen thinking as I look at the moments that passed by…
Thank you very much Angela Jackson (media lawyer in fur hat above presenting Dukhtar). Thank you also Keswick film festival for giving me such good experience and ensuring there was no rain.
