Joe: Having recently released a short documentary, Finding Thea, on the life and legacy of one of Puget Sound's maritime heroines, Thea Foss, thought you should have some information to share with your readers. Apparently you talked to co-producer / director Lucy Ostrander a while back. Would be happy to discuss over phone or add entries to your blog.

Finding Thea has had a great reception thus far: at Port Townsend Film Festival, Lynwood Theatre on Bainbridge, Everett Public Library, and at the Tacoma Film Festival (where it won "Best Local Film" award and was sold out for 4 screenings). In the near future, we are scheduled to show the film at several cultural organizations. In 2007, we hope it will be selected for more film festivals and are planning distribution to regional schools, libraries and universities.
