23 Nov Culver City Fundraiser – November 3rd, 2012

Saturday, November 3 a Fun Fundraiser for Paying the Price for Peace was held at
Frank and Jane Dorell’s house in Culver City.  Special guests attending were S. Brian Willson,  Blase & Theresa Bonpane
and Bo Boudart and over 90 guests.   The party screened Bo Boudart’s most recent movie trailer for Paying the Price for Peace.
Brian addressed the audience spoke passionately about the need for people to speak up against war, live sustainably, and to share their thoughts for peace.
Blase Bonpane and his wife Theresa also attended the fundraiser.  They both co-founded the Office of the Americas in 1983 to work on human rights and
identify the illegal and immoral aspects of domestic & foreign policies of the U.S.   Blase played a significant role in bringing
investigations into the illegal covert wars promoted by the U.S. in Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala,  El Salvador, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, and Iraq.   As a priest he also served on a series of peace missions in many of these countries, and continues to be a leader in the Los Angeles area.
On November 4, Brian received an award at the Artivist Awards- held in Barnsdall Theater Park, Los Angeles to a packed audience.  This annual event raises awareness for Humanity, Animals, & the Environment through Film & Community Action.
While in LA, director Bo Boudart also had an opportunity to interview renowned Vietnam veteran activist Ron Kovic, best known for his book and subsequent movie Born on the Fourth of July directed by Oliver Stone.  Ron shared many thoughts about his life and 40 years of anti-war activism on camera.   He acknowledged that he has a great bond with Brian for many reasons, not least, whose birthday is also on the 4th of July.
We continue to plan more production for the documentary over the next several months.
