Anthony Pedone wanted to create a culture exchange in his hometown. He's convinced film enthusiasts from Europe and even New Zealand to come to the Crossroads. I interviewed Peter Karena yesterday and I found him so intriguing.

He stays in the mountains for months at a time and has managed to keep an isolated lifestyle. The father of seven has not been affected by his notoriety from his film "This Way of Life" which debuted in 2009.

Karena did his first media interview with me yesterday. I was flattered and honored. The interview became more like a conversation. It was simply delightful.

His movie will help to kick off the four day festival which will include other documentaries, shorts, and features.

Will you be attending the festival, why or why not? Advocate readers, I want to hear from you.
