It's been ten years since I've heard this, but it's still special to me. During the 9/11 attacks, my nature documentary, Beyond the Garden Gate, was airing on PBS that month. A man from NYC tracked me down to order copies because both Amazon and PBS were out at the time. He said he was sitting in a shop and watched the program on PBS with members of Battalion 59, who lost 15 of their men, and said it brought such peace over them. This is an excerpt from our 8-minute conversation where he ordered 24 copies for all sorts of people. I got off the phone and bawled it was so unexpected. This is what filmmakers hope for, to know you've affected others with your work. Below is also a clip from the film.
