Dallas Video Festival
Amongst several movie festivals held every year, Dallas Video Festival is unique because just as the name suggests, it is a 'video' festival. Videos which are collected each year are shown at two venues—Angelika and the Dallas Theater Center. There is a free festival pass available which grants access to the screenings and other events. Though short films are not ignored, the rest of the slot is taken by adverts, animation as well as documentaries.
We went to opening night of the theater's show "Ella" based on the concert Ms. Fitzgerald performed in Nice in 1967. The cast, in particular E. Faye Butler was outstanding as Ella. Trumpeter Ron Haynes, blew us away his vocal and brass-playing impression of Louis Armstrong. The writing and the staging had us feeling like we had stepped back in time. We love Miss Ella, and Ms. Butler's performance brought her back, if only for a night. Thank you.
