Philippe Dufour 70th Birthday Celebration Film

In 2005, I had the pleasure of working with a very talented young team at a British film production company called Animal Monday on a short documentary film called Time Piece featuring Philippe Dufour and Vianney Halter.

In April 2018 I had the honor of receiving an invitation from Mrs. Elisabeth Dufour to the 70th birthday party she was organizing for Philippe, and I immediately thought:

a. Hallelujah!

b. What will I wear?

c. I wonder if we could get the (Animal Monday) band back together and make a nice film?

And, incredibly, thanks to the amazing efforts of a group of very talented people led by producer/director Kat Mansoor, we made a film.

Welcome to the party.

This film was made possible thanks to an absolutely sensational team, including:
Mrs. Elisabeth Dufour: event organizer (for the leap of faith)
Kat Mansoor: director
