Two year update and see the movie online!

Greetings! A lot has happened since the last update... After the Tribeca Film Festival, the movie went on to play in festivals around the world, bringing home awards from Woodstock, Woods Hole, Napa Valley, Oaxaca, Mt. Hood, IFFBoston and Miami Shorts. Baltazar came to New York for the premiere and returned to Ecuador with new stories and a full belly (seriously, he ate a lot of food). We also held community screenings for the indigenous communities near Baltazar in Ecuador. Now I am pleased to announce that the movie will be available for free online along with a brand new website (in English and Spanish) full of pictures and video extras. It is also featured today as a Vimeo Staff Pick.  I hope you enjoy it, this wouldn't have been possible without your support. Thank you again!
