From the Mike's Place Family
18 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

We, the Mikes Place Family, would like to clarify a few things about the film. First, we'd like to say that "Blues by the Beach" portrays an exact chronicle and emotional documentation of the difficult events that we all went through and have overcome. Due to the unique set environment this story was written by events that none of us had control over. As a raw documentary, it precisely portrays the facts of these events and the human reactions to terrorism.

"Blues by the Beach" has been on the road now for 2.5 years winning awards and receiving general support by everyone who has seen it.

In regard to negative comments - Pavla herself worked on the editing for months and approved the rough cut which involved her relationship with Joshua. No new scenes were shot or cut. For some reason she had a change of heart after they broke up. Although Pavla is displeased with the end result, we the Mike's Place Family would like to thank Pavla for her artistic contribution and for being an important part in our time of trouble.

Pavla, you are a part of our history.

We at Mike's Place support the accuracy of the film and its future prospects. We hope the film can send a message about human suffering caused by terrorism and the ability to overcome.

We are witnesses and have participated in "Blues by the Beach" and support the film from its conception until now. We went through the same traumatic events as Pavla, Jack, Josh and others, and we hope our message is heard.

Sincerely, Co-Owners, Mike's Place ® Gal Ganzman, Assaf Ganzman, Dave Beck, and The Mike's Place Family.
