"Dear Zachary" makes TV Debut


Last January, I had the pleasure of interviewing Kurt Kuenne about his film "Dear Zachary" which premiered at Slamdance.  Watching this movie feels like getting a punch to the gut - it's powerful and takes your breath away.

If you didn't see it during Slamdance, now's your chance...I just got this from Kurt:
Our big North American Television Premiere is finally upon us. �"Dear Zachary" premieres on cable this weekend...
Sunday night, December 7th at 9 PM (all time zones) on MSNBC. �(See www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3036750/ for details.)
It will be re-broadcast that same evening again at midnight. �This TV version is just slightly trimmed down from the theatrical version (I did all the editing personally and am very happy with the TV version) in order to fit a 2 hour time slot with 31 minutes of commercials (9 commercial breaks). �The Today Show (on NBC) will be running a 2 minute segment from the film sometime on their Sunday morning show that same day.�
In the meantime, we're continuing to play theaters and open Friday for a week-long engagement in my (and Andrew's) hometown of San Jose. �If you're in the Bay Area, please come out to see the film in the theater! �I'll be there this weekend and would love to see y'all:
