  1. Are any of those box sets left?
    What an amazing lady. She is such an inspiration to me. A legacy of humanity shared by her artist gifts. I had the opportunity to meet her on Victoria Island. A friend introduced me to her because I am a photographer interested in various causes. I have since viewed several of her films and I am humbled to have met such an extraordinary artist. Richard Cardinal doc made me cry.
