A few thanks, in advance

It's time to recognize a few people who have really stepped up to help with our screening in Providence next Friday, August 7.

Bill Barta and Christine Francis have been postering and distributing postcards all over town for days. We're especially trying to reach out to Providence's Cambodian community, which numbers about 8000 to 10,000 people, and Bill was telling me about his visits to temples, social service organizations and other places where people recognized Chea Vichea's name and were so happy that there's a movie about him.

Susan Yund has also been postering, and what's more, has arranged for the bar that she runs to host an after-party for the screening. (More details to come, in a separate item.)

And of course there's George T. Marshall and the Rhode Island International Film Festival itself. Aside from accepting Who Killed Chea Vichea? into the festival, they have generously made a block of tickets available to a group of Cambodian and Laotian youth from the Providence Youth Student Movement who otherwise could not afford to see the film.

Thank you all!
