Thursday, August 26 was a great day for ‘Reparando’. Our friends in Guatemala held a private screening for hundreds of Guatemalan leaders to cast the vision for our November Premiere in Guatemala City. I haven’t gotten a detailed report, but heard that it went very well. My favorite detail is that Maria the Doll Lady was in attendance – this makes me smile! I am looking forward to experiencing the story with them in November!
Here in the States, we were busy as well. In the morning I received notice that ‘Reparando’ was featured on PasteMagazine.com as one of 10 documentaries to see this fall.
For lunch, Paul took me to meet Cort Langeland of Compass Film Academy. We toured their facility and ate across the street at a great deli. Compass is doing some incredible things with future leaders in the film industry. I highly recommend their program to anyone who wants to get involved in Film.
Later in the evening we held a planning and brainstorming meeting for the October Premiere here in Michigan. I am thrilled with the ideas that are developing in this community! After the meeting, we drove over to the Founders for some more engaging discussion, music, and a sampling of their wares. We swapped stories and dreamed of future initiatives late into the night. Stay tuned for details on some very unique events in Michigan!
