Welcome to the House of Crouse. It’s a sombre week around the HoC as we remember Rob Stewart, the environmentalist and filmmaker who passed away January 31, 2017 while filming a documentary. His movie Sharkwater won awards all over the world and shed light on the plight of sharks in the modern world. On a lighter note, Michael Cera stops by to chat about playing Robin in The Batman Lego Movie. C’mon in and sit a spell.
Welcome to the House of Crouse. Today around the old HoC we’re thinking locally but acting globally. Joyce A. Nashawati’s pre-apocalyptic film “Blind Sun” sets xenophobia and alienation against the sunny backdrop of Athens, Greece. Jamie Kastner’s documentary “The Skyjacker’s Tale” tells the story of Ishmael Muslim Ali an American convicted of murdering eight people in the US Virgin Islands who hijacked an American Airlines plane full of passengers to Cuba on New Years Eve 1984, and got away with it. Until now. Great stories, so come on in and sit a spell.
