SF Public Press Crossword Creator Featured in New Documentary
For Andrea Carla Michaels, who has been crafting crossword puzzles for about thirty years, a good puzzle is “the same thing that makes you laugh — you don’t know quite what it’s going to be, but it’s something unexpected and it’s something that resonates deep inside.”
Michaels, who creates crossword puzzles for the quarterly print edition to the San Francisco Public Press, is a regular puzzle contributor to The New York Times. She is featured in a charming new short documentary “Life in Black and White” by San Francisco filmmaker, Regina Rivard. The film sheds light on four Bay Area residents whose lives center on black and white — a crossword puzzle-maker, an aquatic biologist who works with penguins, a piano tuner and a Domino club founder.
