Links for Lunch – Berlin Roundup

An ongoing feature in which I recommend the work and websites of people who buy me lunch. Today’s entry: people I’ve neglected to post about who bought me lunch in Berlin!

Pierre-Jean Duffour and Stéphanie Gerlier (above) of MASALADOSA attempted to buy me lunch but were intercepted by Sita patron/Temple Construction Engineer Tom Swain (with wife Elke, below). However the next day they managed to pay for my food at the Teddy Awards party. I can’t praise the music of MASALADOSA enough. They found me online, sent me their music, and now it’s in Sita Sings the Blues. Hopefully I’ll see them again soon in France – fingers crossed for the Annecy festival, to which I submitted as soon as I got back.
Kaisa Penttilä, a Finnish animator living in Berlin, saw Sita and subsequently emailed me. One thing led to another, and the next thing you know, she bought me lunch.

Bonus lunch: Greg Sextro, and Reena Shah and I were also treated to lunch at the Berlinale Lunch Club.

Would YOU like to be featured in Links for Lunch? Then buy me lunch. My email address is at the bottom of the middle column, the one with the pictures linking to my movies and cartoons and stuff.

  1. Nina, you must be like the nicest/coolest quasi-famous person I have ever tried to contact. I just saw you post on Sajaforum on behalf of one of your staff. Then I go on your website and see you extending your arms to all the locals. I love it! I was digging around online very auspiciously to see if you accidentally left your email address somewhere, and there it is displayed proudly amid your artwork!

    I know this post is for lunch in Berlin, but I would like to invite you, your staff, or any other desi, or desi sympathizer who happens to read this to lunch, dinner, coffee, etc anytime. I work at Chicago O’hare. Let me know when you’re passing through.

    I’m a nobody really, I write as a hobby and to avoid impending identity crisis. Help, save me from my common, melodramatic life!
