Episode #03: History of the film (Part 2)

Show Title: History of the film (Part 2)

In the third episode of the Inside the Journey podcast John & Nelson continue their discussion about the history of their film.

A lot has happened since the start of this project in 2010. We realize that many people are unaware of the developments with the film. So we recorded this episode to share our progress and person highlights.

Originally this was going to be one episode but we decided to break it up. In part 2 we talk cover our Nelson’s trip back to LA and our talk at the U. Chicago Robert Kirschner Memorial lecture.

About the podcast

Our goal with the podcast is to give you a look at what is going on behind the scenes with the film and to explore this very complicated issue.

Since we are just starting it the Podcast is not available on iTunes what we will be adding it shortly. New episodes will come out every Sunday, so make sure follow along.

You can follow us on Facebook or on Twitter or you can sign up for our email newsletter.

The Identifying Nelson/Buscando a Roberto newsletter goes out about once or twice a month. It contains only the most important news about the film and is the best way to keep updated about our progress. You can sign up here: http://eepurl.com/wvJEn.

About Nelson/Roberto

Separated from my family during El Salvador's civil war, by death and adoption, I was reunited with them at the age of 16. I do entrepreneurial art projects that are meaningful, relevant, and push me creatively.

    Hi Nelson and John,
    A little delayed in getting to listen to Episode #3. Brought back memories of Chicago a year ago. Can you change the spelling of seance to scenes above? :0 Love, Mom
