Sheffield

The devastatingly attractive Israeli woman introduced herself by saying 'can I be your partner'? Unfortunately I was at the front of a queue and she just wanted me to hold a place in the queue for her. That's what it was like at the Sheffield Doc Festival. Surprises at every turn. At the entrance I was handed a leaflet asking me to boycott Israeli cultural products. Does that mean I can't mention her video Jerusalem SOS about a motorcycle based emergency service run by Ultra Orthodox Jews with some help from Palestinians? Then there was the guy from Bournemouth who had made a video about American clothes lines. Apparently he discovered on Wikkipedia that this is a highly contentious issue.

A few seconds later I met the lady who had registered thesea.com Never since the time of Neptune has anyone had the sea as a domain! She got it because she was making video docs about sharks.
