A friend of my friend, Wes Kim, has been illegally detained in Nigeria! Here's the email Wes sent:
I wanted to let you know that Sean Porter of Swingset Film & Audio, someone who helped a great deal with the production of COOKIES FOR SALE, is part of a film crew that's been detained in Nigeria while they were trying to film a documentary. You can follow the latest developments at Northwest Film Forum's blog, but I'm sure an email to Sen. Maria Cantwell thanking her for her support in finding a quick resolution to this mess would be appreciated by the filmmakers and their friends and family.
