An excellent, original and personal work!

As a documentary film-maker and personally concerned by the
subject matter, I was very moved by this program that I happened
to stumble over when it was broadcast on French TV FRANCE2
on Feb. 14, 2003, late at night. The more so, since it has helped to
motivate me to make a documentary about my personal
experience, similar, yet different, that I have lived with for some 30
odd years. For that purpose, I would like to contact Barry and
discuss his film with him. Barry, if you read this, feel free to write
me a note, so we can get in touch.
May I add, as advice to documentary film-makers in the US, I
strongly believe that one should put up a fight with foreign
broadcasters to have interviews and on-camera statements
sub-titled rather than dubbed or voice-overed. The off-commentary
can be dubbed, hence giving the viewer a language "break", but
sub-titled on-camera statements are closer to the real thing. I'm
not sure about other countries, but the French audience is used to
that and appreciates it.
Keep up the good work - a beautiful personal and honest piece of
work that deserves to be honored at festivals!
Michael Brown, Paris France
