An absolute labor or love and exercise in tenacity, this poignant and timely documentary is a must see. Combining the talents of three of our longest running collaborators – Michelle Jouse, Liam McNiff and Chad Mann – what years ago were conceptual brainstorms and preliminary shooting has transformed into a movement, and we are ecstatic at the praise, love and attention this film deserves.
Please take a moment to read through the Rotten Tomatoes reviews, and take heed of the masterful storytelling and challenge at hand: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/matt_shepard_is_a_friend_of_mine/
As top film critic Stephanie Mary of the Washington Post so poignantly puts it,
“If Jouse wanted to rehumanize Shepard, she has succeeded. Her other goal, though worthwhile, was not so easy to accomplish: to make sense of a horrific event and move on.”
