When I heard that Martha Boneta’s story had been made into a documentary film, I was intrigued, and when that film won an audience award at the Anthem Film Festival, I got pretty excited about seeing it. The only difficulty was waiting for a showing that was relatively convenient to travel to and for most of us in Northern Virginia, that hasn’t happened yet. Well, our wait is over, and seeing the film is now more convenient than I expected. It’s been released on YouTube.
And here it is:
I think all of us owe our appreciation to the folks at Honest Enterprise for making this possible and especially for eschewing the profit motive of putting this behind some sort of paywall. An effort like this requires a pretty substantial investment of time, effort and equipment and to make this freely available to us is pretty remarkable. There’s not a lot of people that can devote weeks or months of their time to a project and then just give it away.
This is 28 minutes of life well spent. Enjoy.
