For those who have been asking, Liberia ’77 (official title!) is, as they say, ‘in the can’. Early reviews from family and friends have been positive. (“I loved it – but I didn’t love your beard.” – Jeff’s Mom) But the real test will be the eyes of those who don’t know me and my brother. We’re now in a bit of a holding pattern as we wait hopingly on word a few film festivals (Hot Docs, Tribeca, DOXA) before it hits the airwaves on Knowledge (BC), TVO (Ontario) and Access (Alberta) later in the year. And hopefully it will be online sooner than later.
Watch this space for more info. In the meantime, we’re excited to be working with the talented Sean Embury at FULSCRN to build a spiffy new website to house the Liberian Photo Repatriation Project, which will move into full swing once the film is released. So yeah, there’s where we’re at. Again, thanks to everyone for all the support and encouragement as we’ve travelled this path – I can’t say it enough. I look forward to your seeing the final cut. I hope you’ll dig it. – Jeff
