I'm Kurt, I made the film "Dear Zachary", currently showing on MSNBC. I'll be doing a live newsvine chat for one hour following the January 4th broadcast (the movie shows Sunday night, January 4th, 2009 at 11 PM EST, so I'll be on from 1 AM -2 AM EST on the morning of January 5th) and will be happy to answer as many of your questions as I can during that time period to the best of my knowledge. I did a similar Q&A chat following the premiere broadcasts on December 7, 2008, in which many of your questions may be answered, so if you'd like to read those posts & questions, you can do so at: http://kurtkuenne.newsvine.com/_news/2008/12/02/2170527-ask-the-filmmaker-a-question-about-dear-zachary.
This film is an invitation to become part of its story and Kate & David Bagby's still unfolding quest for change; if you were affected by what you saw and want to do something about it, I urge you to write Canada's Parliament to express your feelings on this case, regardless of your citizenship. It's very easy: for help on how to do this, go to www.dearzachary.com and click on "Support Bail Reform". If you are a Canadian citizen, the page helps you find your Member of Parliament via your postal code. If you are not, the address for the Minister of Justice & Attorney General of Canada is there for your use. You will also find a questionnaire in the form of a downloadable Microsoft Word document that can either be filled out and sent directly, or used as a list that can give you things to think about as you compose a letter with your own words.
Thank you so much for taking the time to watch the film and for your interest in discussing this situation which is, as you know if you've watched the film, very important to me and the hundreds who loved Andrew and Zachary. More reviews and information can be found at www.dearzachary.com.
All the best,
