Filmmaker Peter Hanson, Tale from the Script
Lynette Kessler, Dance Camera West

With intriguing topics like “Anybody Can Do That”, “Food Stamps & Good Wishes,” to “Nobody Wants Your Stuff,” and “Freefall the Catastrophe of Success” anecdotal and cautionary tales are told with humor, insight, and rueful experience.
