A request from a felow traveller…
Everyone here is in one way or another related to L’Arche. Call it 6 degrees of separation. One way or another you and I have met through L’Arche. You may all remember that my first short documentary “Where’s Your Home?” was about the ever charasmatic John Smeltzer. I have been developing a new feature length documentary about John’s life in the past half year, in order to take Johns story to a much bigger audience. The dream is bigger this time too. The new film is called “SPOON MAN”.
In needing to get creative about putting this together I’ve decided to take it to the net. We’re only looking for your moral support. Just a line or two to tell us, GO FOR IT! Check out this link: http://www.deiren.com/spoon_man_petition.html
Find John on stage with Natalie MacMaster and then follow the instructions about leaving your comments! PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO ANYONE YOU FEEL APPROPRIATE. The more the merrier.
THANKS ALL – Hope to see you at the movies!
