Director Statement

I love digging into stories, and this one required digging both literally and figuratively. It's wonderful that city leaders are now paying attention and might change some laws and policies. It was also cool that I got to interview my good friend for this film, US Sen. Maria Cantwell (D) Seattle. Doing research I discovered she is the Senate sponsor of the national Landslide Preparedness Act.
