Forty years of filmmaking will be condensed in an hour-long Retrospective film to air on KERA’s Frame of Mind September 14th. We have culled through 40 films to showcase some of our work. The memories have given us the energy to think of the next 40 years of filmmaking. What is most powerful for us is to think about all the people our films have touched. And to say thank-you to all the people who have worked on, contributed to or supported in some way our work. Film is truly a collaborative art form.
