Well, Niels (Alfred and Jakobine's son) is, to be more accurate - but he'll be retelling the story of Alfred & Jakobine (with a few surprises) to a world-wide radio/web audience of over 30 million people. No pressure Niels!
You can tune in to BBC World Service's Outlook radio program here. The show should be on around noon GMT, tomorrow (Tuesday, July 1st) so quite early for all of you in North America, but can be listened to it any time after that first broadcast via BBC World Service's website. We haven't heard it yet ourselves, so can't wait.
Alfred & Jakobine is back from its UK and US premieres!
We had a great time at Sheffield Doc/Fest for Alfred & Jakobine's UK premiere, and at AFI Docs in Washington, DC for our US premiere. Great audiences; great Q&A's; wonderful festival staff that made us feel very special.
At Sheffield Doc/Fest, Festival Director Heather Croall, listed us in her "five to watch" list at this year's festival. Needless to say, we were thrilled.
Thanks to both festivals for selecting A&J. We were honoured to be there. And a big thanks to the enthusiastic audiences in both Sheffield and Washington.
We now await word from a handful of other festivals, in other countries, about A&J's appearances in the Autumn. Fingers crossed everyone!
