The most important film in a man's life. and yours.
11 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

I just watched this last night on PBS. Today I am all over the internet trying to figure out what I can do to help artist Jackie Summel and Herman Wallace.

Watch this documentary and then donate. Help them build the house! Spread the word about Herman Wallace.

So beautiful and sad... mostly beautiful.

The court system (along with all systems) in the US just suck. 40 years in solitary confinement is cruel and unusual punishment.

Sign the petitions, spread the word! For the love of mankind and Herman!! We love you Herman! Thank you Jackie!!
