Thanks to film festival

A huge “thank you” to Miami Dade College for an amazing 32nd Miami International Film Festival. Thanks to executive director Jaie Laplante and his spectacular staff, the fabulous filmmakers, the sponsors and the dedicated volunteers.

In his March 15 column, Leonard Pitts Jr. bemoans the ever-widening political divide in this country and reasons, “Disagreement is not a reason to stop talking.” At the film festival, the documentary Best of Enemies reaches the same conclusion.

I challenge the media to adopt a format for reasoned debate and conversation. It might prove popular with a populace exhausted by endless impasse.
