Close Encounters of the Indigenous Kind

Here's a shot of me with actress Ningali Lawford. She's been in Rabbit Proof Fence, Australia and upcoming film Bran Nue Dae with Geoffrey Rush. She is one of Australia's top language and casting experts for the aboriginal, or indigenous, communities of Australia. By a stroke of pure fate, she happens to also be my boyfriend's sister-in-law. Ningali is probably one of the nicest and most interesting people I've ever met. I interviewed her once for a national radio program in Australia and it was a pleasure to finally meet her.

Make sure you check out Bran Nue Dae when you can. For those attending the Victoria Film Festival, you'll have a chance to see the film.
