A big congrats to Kate Connor and the cast & crew!

“We are thrilled to be working with Monterey Media with their rich tradition of championing beautiful award-winning films” said Connor. “Not only is it a personal film involving the history of my family, but it is our collective history as Americans, so we can’t wait to bring this untold story to a wider American audience with Monterey.”
