I missed Up The Yangtze at VIFF, mostly because it didn't really sound interesting enough to book it but now I must admit I sort of regret it, especially considering that it generated a lot of buzz from a number of people I was talking to regularly at the festival. Goes to show that sometimes I SHOULD listen to what they tell me!
