      Thank you so much for this update, and I do understand the reasons for the delays; I do wish that you had responded sooner and more promptly to our soncerns as given both here and on your FaceBook page. I look forward to seeing the movie online the week of September when it will be made available. Again, thank you for all of your hard work.

      Steve Fish, they have stated that instructions will be sent in the first days of September.

      I must be missing something... is there actually a link to watch the movie online somewhere?

      not a problem; take your time to do things right by the people of Cateura. this is sure to be a smash and get many awards and thus boost awareness of the problems faced by the "little people" of the world.

      Thank you for the update. I understand things happen, but lack of updates and opening a store when you haven't sent the backers anything is a bit odd. I'm hoping we can the see the movie when you say. I'm wondering if pestering Kickstarter is what brought us this update?

      Thank you for the update. Life happens!
      Can you do another kickstarter (or maybe there was one on here) so that I can purchase a musical instrument from y'all, made in the "traditional way"? It would delight me.

      On behalf of myself, you take as much time as you need. Art cannot and should not be rushed, nor should the love, time, sweat and effort that I am sure you have all put into this. Thank you for the update and I eagerly await the release. Also, for bringing more joy, laughter and music into this world and I wish you the best of luck with the premiere.

      Thank you for the update. It's nice to know what is happening. For me anyway, infrequent updates are a cause for concern because when you know there have been difficulties and changes to the plan lack of updates may indicate more issues and problems have arisen but you aren't hearing about them.
      I am happy to know that the plans for the movie are progressing. I am looking forward to seeing the movie online in September. I guess we can watch beginning next week! I'll keep checking for information on how to access the movie online.
      Thanks again for the update.

      Thanks for the update, can't wait to see the movie and have no problem to with frequent updates but at least the next one should be in september!!
      I definitely that you could update a bit more, even if you think the updates are boring to us it is interesting to hear the progress and any problems you are having.
      Thanks again!!

      Can't wait to see the movie!
      However I am still annoyed for those backers (even though that does not include me) that were promised tickets to a screening of the film, which based on the comments they did not receive - despite plenty of screenings happening.
      Also disappointed in the lack of communication since the update where you said it would take a while longer. People here were commenting a lot, and there was nothing but silence from you. Not a good way to run a crowdfunding campaign!

      You want to make it as perfect as possible! Better later than expected for improved quality of the film! You have thought of a very creative way to fulfill your promises to backers!

      Complete and true is far better than fast. Congratulations on the completion of the film! I'm looking forward to watching it.

      This is a story that needs to be told. Telling it right takes time. You have kept us updated and I am excited that you have reached this stage in the process. I've been to Paraguay and it is an amazing place. I have heard the Landfill Harmonic and those kids are nothing short of brilliant. I applaud your efforts. Kudos!

      I am grateful for the update, but I know it is taking time. I am just so glad that the goal of a world-wide release is so close! Looking forward to September...

      Thank you for the update. I'm happy it's all falling into place. The real world can get very messy, so a stopgap screening is very much appreciated.
