Hello,

Yesterday, I had sent this out but it doesn't appear to 
have come through to the list. So this is a second attempt.
I apologize if this is a repeat message to you.

I thought that possibly you may be interested 
in the following:

A few years ago when it was shown in Montpelier (Vermont) 
at the Savoy Theater, I had the pleasure to experience 
viewing Nora Jacobson's first film, a feature-length 
documentary "Delivered Vacant", which premiered at the 
1992 New York Film Festival and was selected for the 
Sundance Film Festival.  

In "Delivered Vacant", Nora took on what was actually 
happening in the rental housing market in Hoboken, N.J. 
as no one else has dared to tell it. Nora was there at 
that viewing in Montpelier which I attended. She spoke 
about the film and entertained an extremely engaging 
question and answer period with a lot of candid give 
and take discussion breaking out among many of those 
staying after the film.

Nora Jacobson's "Delivered Vacant" will be shown 
again in Montpelier (Vermont) as part of the Green 
Mountain Film Festival (GMFF), which runs from 
March 26th-April 1st.

"Delivered Vacant"  is scheduled for Saturday, 
March 27th at 1:30 PM at the Pavilion Auditorium 
(109 State St., Montpelier). Nora jacobson will be
there to discuss the film after the showing.
