An Absolute Must See
20 January 2018 | by kris_buchanan_378See all my reviews

Was fortunate enough to see screening of Whirpool this year at Heartland Film Festival and meet Kate and Elizabeth afterwards. Amazing how much information they were able to share about Helen Keller in this short. Very much looking forward to the feature length film.
