    Congratulations Rob!! This was a fabulous movie…I saw it in Torotno during TIFF and it’s definitely something we need to be showing all of our young people!

    That’s amazing! Not just because it won, but because people are watching it and are being effected. Hopefully it will effect people enough to take action and join the Revolution!!!
