Review - James Walsh - CU Denver Screening
"Through her dynamic film about the life of Michael D. McCarty and the discussion that she led after the film, Arielle Nobile nourished our University and enriched our lives through a story about storytelling. This film is both a history lesson and a journey into the cathartic qualities of telling stories."
