St. Paul film director Ali Selim was at the Southgate Theater here in Northfield on Monday, introducing and then discussing the feature film Sweet Land for an audience of mostly St. Olaf college students as part of a writing class. (I got wind of it from Curt Benson who got wind of it from this discussion thread in the Northfield.org Forums.)
The film is a treat: Poignant. Romantic. Inspiring.
