John Lynch – ABROAD

[Vimeeeeeo]

Todays “sit down and watch” video is brought to you buy a traveling friend Katie Hilborn. While Katie is traveling and rocking out Phuket she is also sharing solid work from her friends.

Discussing the message of his new film, John Lynch states,

“It’s about how meeting fellow travelers can open up your world. I hope this movie encourages others to get off the tourist trail, throw away their itineraries, and get involved with something out of their comfort zone; stepping in to make a difference is much more rewarding than just being an observant tourist.”

On a personal level, he found satisfaction in the fact that he “did not just find a story to tell, but lived a story worth telling.”

Documentary Night — Inside Job

I can’t wait to watch this. Inside Job has been on my list of documentaries to watch for quite some time now.

“‘Inside Job’ provides a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse. Through exhaustive research and extensive interviews with key financial insiders, politicians, journalists, and academics, the film traces the rise of a rogue industry which has corrupted politics, regulation, and academia. It was made on location in the United States, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China.”
