Sedona AZ (February 9, 2014) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present a two-day-only premiere event on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 15 and 16 with the Northern Arizona debut of “The Square” — Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Feature. There will be two screenings of the film: 4 p.m. on Saturday and 7 p.m. on Sunday at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

From the 2011 overthrow of a 30-year dictator, through military rule, and culminating with the forced military removal of the Muslim Brotherhood president in the summer of 2013, “The Square” follows a group of Egyptian activists as they battle leaders and regimes, and risk their lives to build a new society of conscience.

A beautiful Robin nearly submerged in water droplets flying everywhere as he takes a morning bath in a cattle pond between SR 179 and Cornville Road off Beaverhead Flat Road. What a great way to get a day off to a good start and this Robin is no exception. I spent a very interesting morning with Eric at a cattle pond last week and it was fascinating to watch the different species as they came in and got their morning drink and a few like this Robin got into some major cleanup efforts with water flying everywhere. Civilized? Do not think so … try a shower like this at home and see how long you last :+) Looks like fun though.
