There is no other way to begin this post than to say we are deeply honored.
We are honored to have been given the chance to tell the stories of 3 amazing women:
Anna Mann, Sonia Kendrick and Althea Raiford.
Thanks go to them for trusting us to present their stories honestly. Their courage to lay themselves bare, to share their experiences of what it was like being in war and coming home and finding themselves changed in ways they could not at first understand, was humbling for us.
Thank you to the staff of the Rome International Film Festival for selecting the film, and to all those involved in giving TERRA FIRMA the Special Jury Award for Documentary Feature Film and presenting us with one of the best festival statues, The Sylvia.
The award is for a thoughtful film that raises awareness about an important issue from a sensitive vantage point.
