IN the spring of 2019 independent film director Bogdan Darev left his hometown Seattle to go on a tour with his documentaryTHERE. As interest grew so did the invitations to show the film. By the end of the year Bogdan connected to audiences face to face in 25 cities and 3 countries. This was the start of a heartfelt cross-cultural-conversation through the power of cinema.
