The original plan was for the entire movie to be shown; however, the company that owns the rights to the movie has decided to only make select portions available. Derrick Wilburn reports that while this is disappointing it should allow a greater opportunity for a discussion with Mr. Bryant.
Derrick Wilburn has been a speaker at the Arapahoe County Tea Party and numerous other groups in the Denver metro area where people have asked how to help. This is a Saturday event and might draw some attention from folks in our area. Derrick commented in a recent telephone conversation that the plane tickets and other arrangements for Mr. Bryant were already in hand before other problems cropped up. The problem is that the movie cannot be shown in its entirety--only select portions--at this time.
Hopefully the movie "Runaway Slave" will be released to a broader audience soon. It is a real shame that all of the documentaries are having such a difficult time getting into theaters or general distribution.
