While I was in LA for a conference, I got a chance to steal away to
Hollywood to catch the LA premiere of my friend Kurt's documentary,
"Dear Zachary." As a bonus, I attended a showing that he was actually
at, so we were able to chat before the film and I stayed for a portion
of his Q&A afterwards. I'm so proud of what he's produced, and the
thoughtfulness and follow-through he demonstrated in putting this
together. You really should consider watching this powerful film.
See additional information below on when and where you can catch it.
