We will do, then we will understand

A few months ago, I wrote about Sparrow Songs, a year-long project in which filmmaker Alex Jablonski and cinematographer Michael Totten are making one short documenatry a month for a year. It's a terrific project -- beautifully shot, quietly profound -- and I think some of the best documentary film work being done on Los Angeles.

This month, they are halfway through their project. The most recent installment is "L'Arche," and I could tell you what it's about, but it's about everything; it's about life. "Learning Music" is about love. "Porn Star Karaoke" is about just that. And "The Donut Shop" -- well, it's not about doughnuts.
