Thanks very much to all of the supporters and interested persons who attended the New York City Premiere last Tuesday. We were overwhelmed with the response. The event was booked to capacity days in advance, with a growing wait list that followed. Fortunately we were able to accommodate everyone on the night of the event, and for anyone who was unable to attend, we of course encourage you to watch the film in its entirety here.
Last Tuesday's screening was followed by a lively panel discussion, moderated by Beth Fisher-Yoshida, academic director of Columbia University's Negotiation and Conflict Resolution Program, and featuring Lauren Burke, Ethan Downing, and Dr. Ted Perlmutter. We had some great questions from the audience, and will be posting a video recording of the panel discussion here in about two weeks.

Coming up this weekend is the ARTIVIST Film Festival in Los Angeles, CA. ARTIVIST is a film festival focused on human rights issues, and is an official NGO member of the United Nations Department of Information. For screening details, check out our West Coast Premiere page. We would love to see you there.

One of the attendees at Tuesday's event noted that for a documentary film like this, a premiere event is only the beginning of the work, and that's very much true. In the past week that the film's been online, it has accumulated over 600 views, from places as near as Canada to those as far as China. Since sharing the film online, we've received inquiries from universities interested in screening the film for their classes. These are all great signs, and we hope this momentum continues so that more people can learn about this issue, and be motivated to seek ways that they can help.
