THE DAY THE WORLD TURNED DAYGLO
Three days after 9/11 and the beginning of a five year odyssey by a young English teacher traveling through ten Muslim countries at the height of the century's new conflict. A journey across borders, beyond stereotypes and onto a trail of empty bottles leading into the bizarre world of palatic Westerners living right at the heart of conservative Islam.....at a time when being a teacher could get you killed.
When you enter a sandstorm there is no telling where or when you will finally exit.............
The Day The World Turned Dayglo appeared at four international film festivals during 2010/2011, picking up three nominations for best documentary and best international film. It also received two RIFE awards from the UK Film Council and Screen South.
Health permitting a new edit will someday emerge and the film will be available for sale and distribution.
