Avi Mograbi does make wonderful films. I have seen three, "Happy
Birthday, Mr. Mograbi," "August," and "Detail." I believe all were
awarded at the AAFF and it was well deserved. The first two are also
excellent examples of "film diary," or even "home movie" type films, as
discussed in another thread.

Thanks for posting the letter, and the web link.
