Be careful of confusing the world that's watching and listening.

    The film Mas Man produced and directed by Dalton Narine won the "Best Director" Award in the Short Documentary category at the Los Angeles International Film Festival last week.

    Band leader and mas' man Peter Minshall is partly the subject of the film. He is not the director. You show a good pix of Dalton Narine but the first line of copy in your article is ambiguous. WST must not only be informative: it must also be accurate.


Hello Audley

Mas Man Peter Minshall is the name of the film according the creator, Dalton Narine. please check this link http://www.nicolecprince.com/2010/09/mas-man-peter-minshall-wins-ny... or google Mas Man Peter Minshall

Thank you Nicole. To avoid the ambiguity the line should have read "The film 'Mas man Peter Minshall' produced and directed by Dalton Narine won the Best Director Award etc etc..."
I stand pleasantly corrected. ASW
