Arts Engine, Inc. supports, produces and distributes independent media of consequence and promotes the use of independent media by advocates, educators and the general public.
I saw an early cut of Prodigal Sons about 6 months ago and, while it needed more work, it's an utterly fascinating (very!) personal story. I hear Kim's put narration in so can't wait to see it again.
Yes, it's an incredible story with many twists and turns, and it will benefit from the input of DocuClub's smart and dedicated audience.
