More love for Thunder Soul
Thunder Soul -- Mark Landsman's spirited documentary about the grand achievements and recent reunion of a '70s jazz stage band from Houston's Kashmere High School -- continues to delight audiences, impress critics and win awards at international film festivals. After picking up the Audience Award at Austin's SXSW extravaganza in March, then earning a similar accolade at the Dallas International Film Festival last month, the feature-length labor of love was honored this past weekend at the prestigious Hot Docs festival in Toronto. Stay tuned for further developments -- and additional awards.
