...after seeing the film...
THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSES
My appreciation to you for airing the program on the Rio Puerco. The photography was beautiful and the Nasario reminiscents were invaluable, both of the past and present. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Every story shared was like the many water drops of the Rio Puerco flowing again through the Arroyo a day of rain. Each story like a little Rosary pearl of wisdom. It felt so nourishing for the soul.
I’ve hardly ever loved anything as much as watching you in the Rio Puerto Valley tonight on PBS. You took us back to a universal place that was all yours and somehow ours at the very same time. Truly marvelous.
What we witnessed last eve at the museo was really very, very, very, very, very outstanding. That was Academy Award work we saw!...It was so well-done in every respect. A real gem...
You and your story inspire me! What a beautiful way to tell the story with the music and scenery… it is magical!
Watching your documentary, OMG. I can't hold back the tears..........you have brought back so many memories.
I am still sitting here rethinking parts of it that were so captivating..allowing me to cry for the simple beauty of a time and place that left it’s mark on this land and it’s people. Thank you for capturing so well the bittersweet journey that Nasario takes us on that reflects and embodies so beautifully the heart touching legacy of his family of ancestors and their spiritual connection to the land and one another.
Your film...peeled away the years for me. I was at my grandmother's knee again, hearing her stories, the scents in her tiny kitchen in small town Iowa. My grandfather sitting on the porch... A time and place long gone, but alive in my soul. Thank you for this gift!
The film is exquisite. I was deeply moved by how well all of you captured a period of time and a group of people I sure wish there were more of around today.
Some of it reminded me of my own mother’s experience, and I thought of her often during the presentation.
Nos alegró muchísimo tu salida en la pantalla grande ¡Ahuuuuuyayayajá!! Fue un placer muy grande ver en vivo todos tus lugares de corazón. Tu querencia entera. Y ahora un estreno en España - fabuloso. Fue toda una inspiración. Los elementos musicales fueron realmente impresionantes también. ¡Ay, ay, ay!
The work is so beautiful. So much poetry, lyricism and pathos. It had a wonderful quietude in its tone...It is a kind of love song to New Mexico.
A lovely thoughtful conversation with Ellen Lockyer on KSFR's Wake Up Call this morning.
