On August 29, 2012 The National Press Club in Washington, DC screened the film Well of Dreams. The film was very well received. Following the film there was a moderated panel discussion with the film crew and Warren Callaway, Anne Okelo’s mentor. It was an exciting opportunity for the team. In attendance were several officers of the National Press Club along with reporters from a number of national news organizations. http://press.org/events/well-dreams-film-screening  (Read More ...)

The trip to Kenya was amazing and so was all of the support that we felt from our friends and family back here in the US. We are thrilled to report that all of the footage and talent releases made it home safely. We have viewed and logged the footage and it’s stunning. Anne’s story far surpassed our expectations.

It is a daunting task but we are going to make it. We have set up a Kickstarter page to help fund the film. In... (Read More ...)

I’m a big Oprah fan. She is just inspiring. And if you didn’t see her very last show, I suggest you find a friend that might have taped it because it is a master class in life. Her insights, wisdom and advice were fantastic. I had also heard that she was going to announce her favorite guest of all time and I had my thoughts as to who it might be. My guess was John Travolta, whom I also adore. But I was wrong. Oprah’s favorite guest of all time was a woman named Tererai Trent, a Zimbabwean woman who, in Oprah’s words, was “not allowed to have an education,” was... (Read More ...)
