Ahead of tomorrow's sold out World Premiere of Raising Bertie at Full Frame, we gave Indiewire an exclusive clip from the film. Visit their link: Watch: This Exclusive 'Raising Bertie' Clip Will Make You Cry to see the clip, which they call "astounding and powerful."
Steve James will participate in a panel titled "Art & Advocacy" at the Full Frame Film Festival. Get more information.
