Through the Desert Documentary



Between paintings, I've been traveling with Walter while he works on his latest documentary. Here's a link to the website for the documentary he's producing about the Great Mennonite Trek through Central Asia. It's called "Through the Desert" and the international debut is coming this fall along with articles in Mennonite Life magazine.

While his previous documentary was well funded, this one is being developed on a shoestring budget with the help of many donors because he's so passionate about the subject. One of the many interesting things about the story is that this Christian group was seeking religious freedom and found that freedom under a Muslim ruler.

Helping with the documentary has been fun and very educational. It has also given me greater respect for the work my husband does.
