Thank you Eliza Buck, SJI ARC & AG Guild, and SJI Library for the presentation of the film "Island on the Edge" and visit by director Nick Versteeg and his wife and partner Elly Versteeg.
What a great, moving documentary, and what incredibly valuable information! If you weren't lucky enough to be at the presentation last night - please go to the library and borrow this film. The film is also available here.
It would not be a surprise to hear that people here are watching this movie over and over; as someone commented at the showing tonight, "This movie is about us." Please watch it, and see what they mean.
