As I mentioned previously, Rick's story in K.I.A. is loosely based on the Dachau Massacre. Today I found this letter on the national archives which describes the state of the Dachau concentration camp when medic Harold Porter arrived. The situation was unimaginable and this document gives us a small window into the horrors that occurred.
Porter says it best: "Certainly, what I have seen in the past few days will affect my personality for the rest of my life... It is easy to read about atrocities, but they must be seen before they can be believed."
As you may be aware, we have been working hard to secure financing for our film. We received financial sponsorship from the From the Heart Foundation at the end of last year, and have been applying for grants ever since then...
Well, I am very pleased to announce that we just received a generous grant from the Puffin Foundation! This grant helps lay the foundation for us make K.I.A. a reality. I am so very excited and encouraged. So, thank you Puffin Foundation!!
