Time is something I've been thinking an awful lot about during the London leg of the spring/summer 2015 collections. Actually, that's a lie. Because there's no time to think. Or to eat, breathe, go to the toilet. Those kind of things. It makes you long, a little, for New York, for the wide open spaces of their fashion week calendar (at least, my fashion week calendar).

"White Water" is the story of a 7 year-old black kid in segregated 1963 Opelika, Alabama who becomes obsessed with the desire to taste the water from the white's only drinking fountain and sets out on a quest to do the unthinkable:  drink from it. Based on a children's book by Michael S. Bandy and Eric Stein, which was itself based on their childhood experiences, the story is now being produced as a feature film to be shot this fall in Opelika. The film is described as a "whimsical tale in the tone of 'Forest Gump.'" Rusty Cundieff ("Fear of a Black Hat," "Tales From The Hood") will direct from a script written by Bandy and Stein, with Cundieff...
