Selling in a Skirt with Judy Hoberman with her guest Hanna Aneröd & Maura Sweeney
My name is Hanna Aneröd and I'm a filmmaker from Sweden but I film in different countries in the world. I make films together with my husband. I've discovered that we have different qualities that need to be equally used for both our relationship to work and our company to blossom. I'm developing my feminine power more and more and know this has been a piece of the puzzle missing. I've always had a big interest in women's issues and have got great knowledge while doing documentaries the last five years. I'm making several documentaries parallel that are about women. - One film, Thailand Dreams, is about Western men and Thai women and the line between love and exploitation. www.realityfilm.org
Maura Sweeney grew up in New Jersey – northern, that is and Exit 16W to be exact. I used to think I was articulate, pronouncing things like water (whaa’-tah) and coffee (kwah’-fee). I’d also reference others as “you guys” but never as “youz guys”. It wouldn’t be proper grammar for the girl voted Most Dignified in her Lyndhurst High School graduating class.
Long before Snookie and The Situation, I spent a number of very happy summers at the Jersey Shore- the brilliant sunshine, warm sand and sea air provide me with wonderful memories. At 15, I worked on the Pt. Pleasant Beach Boardwalk as a Jenkinson’s Pavilion Penny Candy girl. Literally earning pennies per hour, I was most proud to be wearing a uniform and earning my own wage!

Apocalyptic themes in films reflect tumultuous times; As Obama pretends to tackle ebola, what about Enterovirus D68?; American ebola meets the Jesse Jackson race brigade; Ebola chaos adds to Obama's perceived woes; Can a brave people withstanding SARS and killer bees survive ebola? Sure; but Americans are no longer a brave people, are they?; Under a New Left POTUS, all politics is national - hence all his fundraising to control the federal judiciary via the Senate; and is what this country needs a war of attrition against the welfare state and entrenched incompetency? Because I don't think we have thirty months, much less thirty years.
