Posthumus Film Credit

A number of months ago I received an email from documentary film director Victoria Bruce. She found my Grandfather's Central & South American film footage on my YouTube channel and expressed interest in using scenes of 1960 Panama in her film We're Not Broke. As I have my own filmmaking aspirations I consented freely.

My grandfather filmed Central & South America during a trip he and my grandmother made in 1960. It was his first trip back since leaving Argentina as a boy for Switzerland in 1911.

I was just informed today that We're Not Broke will be featured in year's Sundance Film Festival lineup. As I dream one day to have my own film at Sundance, it fills me with great pride that at least one family member is being recognized this year. Bravo Henri!
