Yippee! THIS IS NOT THE END has just received a Special Jury Mention for Documentary at Big Muddy Film Festival in Iowa. I was sad to not be able to attend this festival as I've heard it's a B-LAST (it's run entirely by the college community), but I'm so excited and honored to hear of the film's success.
One audience member, Lynn Davis, had this to say after seeing the short documentary:
"The camera focuses on each member of one family. No one talks; they just hold up signs identifying themselves and their current situations within the family. From this surface view we are led to discover some deep sadness they share, and joy in spite of it. In the way that it showed so much, so simply, this film reminded me of a haiku poem, and it took my breath away."

Thank you to everyone at Big Muddy! Onward and upward!
