Other times?


Once in Toulouse we decided to put on the film "The Hiding Place" about the Dutch writer Corrie Ten Boom's experiences in a concentration camp. Great name, by the way.

The film is called "Dieu en Enfer" in French - "God in Hell". I'd done some publicity material showing a swastika covering a map of Europe.

We went out busking to make it known. Ian Thomas of Carcassonne was with us on sax. Great musician and all by ear. F# major? No problem . . .

Of course, some locals got the wrong idea about the flyers and threw a tear gas device into the chapel as the film began. Streaming eyes for weeks after that.

I think you need to be a bit more careful about what you put on your publicity in France.
