fantastic
7 October 2017 | by Eric_Manuel_IISee all my reviews

Just watched the premier of this AMAZING documentary at the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival! Everyone / and everyone making movies or watching movies MUST take the time to see reel gem (when available and possible). It took more than 7 years to complete, and it shows both in content, production, craft, skills, and in the emotion it brings out. Bravo! *****
