Our Production Trip to Puerto Rico

by Daniel A. Nelson

What a weekend it has been. We took red-eye flights back and forth from New York City to Ponce, Puerto Rico this weekend to conduct our most anticipated interview to date.

Angela Reyes was the assistant district attorney in Rochester, New York in 1992 and the prosecutor during Kim's trial. The conversation was spirited at times, but to tell Kim's story, it's important to understand how we have conversations about domestic violence from a legal perspective.

After we unpacked every corner of Kim's trial, we talked about the Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act and how she feels about the bill.

We look forward to sharing this interview. It was a critical piece of our documentary and it feels good to finally have it on camera. We also took out the drone for a few shots of the area. Whether they make it into the final cut remains to be seen, but here are a few for your viewing pleasure.

Look out for another update this week when we travel with Kim to Albany for the state legislative session. We'll be speaking with New York state senators about the Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act and what needs to be done for this bill to pass. Until then, thank you all for your support and keep spreading the word about our campaign!
