Happy summer from our cozy Victorian headquarters on the northside of Chicago. We are so happy to have air-conditioning. Despite the heat, our staff and filmmakers are working harder than ever and I felt compelled to check in with you and tell you a bit about all that's going on at Kartemquin. Last fall as we were celebrating our 45th anniversary, I thought it was going to be a hard year to beat. Now, almost 6 full months into 2012, we're a buzz with several exciting events and initiatives in the works to share.
