“Fear is such an easy place to operate from, because it’s soothing, in a way, to state I know my truth, and its indifferent to the reality that I’m being faced with. But, for the viewers, the impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way”
-Brandon Burns, Executive Director
