It's over! (wah)

(Orphans 6 + 1)

Such a party.

Dennis James plays the grand at an Orphans 6 reception. (Yes, that's the Empire State Building in the background.)

The consensus is that the 6th Orphan Film Symposium was a success, if the words and smiles of 300+ people from the
archival, academic, artistic, curatorial, creative, industrial, technologic, museological, and collecting collective are any evidence.

From the concluding film of the symposium (Helen Hill's Tunnel of Love) to the pies in the face bestowed upon the symposium director/blogger, there was an abundance of love. Much more on events of the symposium/conference/festival of March 26-29 day by day.

Tomorrow we can discuss the possible interpretations of Melinda Stone's newly-penned Orphans anthem "Everyone Needs a Hoe."

A dozen grad. students at the event kept a 'live blog' flowing. Look for it to grow.
