"True Forgiveness" Production

The shooting and editing of "True Forgiveness" is well underway.  The team from Eastern Mennonite University arrived with my brother on July 13th as planned.  We shot all of the scenes that take place in Port-au-Prince starting July 14th.  On Wednesday, July 20th, we took our sabbath.  We went to Boutilier, where the radio towers overlook Port-au-Prince. 

The Movie Crew
On Wednesday afternoon, we returned back to the house in Port-au-Prince, loaded up, and came back to my house in Deschapelles.  We spent the rest of this week doing rough edits of the scenes we shot in Port-au-Prince.  Today we're working on the rough edit of the last remaining scene.

If you care to follow the views of one of the crew, visit http://joaquincsosa.com.

Hopefully we'll have a trailer to post in the next few days.

Thanks for your continued prayers!
