    When will this be available for public viewing for those of us who cannot make it to one of the above screenings?

    When are you coming to Los Angeles? I’d be happy to help arrange for you to screen the movie here!

    I thought that this website was supposed to tell me when this documentary was to be shown on PBS? What gives?

      Thanks for your interest. We are still in the process of securing broadcast dates, which is why no information has been posted. Expect an update in the coming weeks.
