Press and Reviews

"One of the most captivating films I’ve ever seen."

Craig Wirth, ABC 4 Utah (KTVX)

"Diego's Dream broke my heart . . . this film is a 15-minute film that is made better than some of the best directors I've ever known."

— Sharon Anderson Morris, Director of FiReFilms


"We . . . have to show human compassion and help one person at a time. You can start today by spreading Diego's story, and in the process perhaps softening a few hearts that sorely need to be softened."

— Bruce Kasanoff in "Great Dreams, Limited Means"
