    Wow! Mucho Gusto! Just got back from Guadalajara and the Peephole film festival. What an amazing experience. Jerzain, a most interesting film maker and festival coordinator. He really embraces true art and cinema. His partner Rolando aka Big Ro! was quite the host of the beautiful city of Guadalajara. We saw so many sites and drank mas tequila, lol. Their spirit of cinema and their passion of their culture is unmatched. We are honored to be a part of their wonderful festival and I now consider them friends of the silver screen. Would definitely recommend going and experiencing Mexico and the Peephole film festival. Gracia's Jerzain and Rolando!

    Ecstatic to have been recognized as an Official Selection to this unique festival. 'Question Everything' isn't a typical narrative film but Peephole recognized its artistry. Thank you. Great communication throughout, with updates. Looking forward to submitting future projects in pursuit of a prestigious cube trophy!
