"Surviving Hitler: A Love Story" opens Southern Circuit #1

I can't believe the Southern Circuit is over! Thank you South Arts. It was an amazing snapshot of the diverse South-- from the smoky mountains to the bayous, from the birthplace of Elvis to the birthplace of Davy Crockett. We screened in front of civil rights leaders, college freshmen, and stock brokers in theaters that ranged from works in progress to historic velvet-lined movie houses. And all in 10 days.

One thing remained the same throughout-- an overwhelmingly supportive and interested audience. We enjoyed huge turn outs at all of our screenings. Special thanks to the community coordination.  I hope our film affected you, the audience, in as positive way as the tour affected me. It was a thrill to be a part of it.
