Immortalizing Memories is a beautiful film that poignantly discusses the importance of community set in an age of institutional failure. I love how this film transcends the many aspects that seem to divide humanity–race, religion, politics, culture–and allows the viewer to recall a simpler and saner time when people had more compassion for one another. Bravo, my friend!
