Virtual Vortex: Heartland

This is a rebroadcast video of the Vortex production of Gabriel Jason Dean's amazing, heartwrenching drama in which a retired professor in Nebraska, reeling after his adopted daughter Getee is killed by the Taliban while teaching children outside of Kabul, is visited by an Afghan refugee who's carrying Getee's prized books, and – oh, you definitely need to see what happens next. Starring Kareem Badr, Kacey Samiee, and Lowell Bartholomee; directed by Rudy Ramirez. I can't vouch for the camerawork on this video – I've not seen it yet – but the show itself, there's no way I can recommend it highly enough. It's so powerful, it's – well, read Robert Faires' review and you'll get an idea.
