Production Update 3 – Edition


In recent months we have been working on the long editing phase that is taking more time than originally anticipated due to some unforeseen circumstances.

Editing a documentary is a time consuming process and requires from us the utmost care, consideration and dedication. We are dealing with many hours of interviews and many archival footage collected during the previous phase. We intend to be able to complete this phase as quickly as possible.

To all who follow us, we apologize for the lack of news stay tuned because there will be news soon.
