I attended a portion of the Portland International Film Festival this weekend.  It was really a great mix of short films, the best of which, was a 17 minute beauty:




Director: Heather Harlow

A former French television journalist takes us into the soul of one of the greatest love stories ever told, presented dramatically through timeless photographs shot by her late husband.

It is produced by great friend, Tessa Papas.  The photography is wonderful, and the narration, not scripted, but the actual words spoken by Maxie during an interview, is deeply touching.

I predict it will be widely seen in many film festivals this year.  See it if you can.  It is a stunning piece of work.
