A Sincere Thank You

by the Simplex Stories team

In the final days before our premiere, the our team has thought about all of those we have met and learned from over the past few months. We have been so thankful to have an amazing support network of peers, professors and professional mentors throughout this entire filming project. Additionally, the people that we interviewed about Maria Pearson's story have been incredible and willing to help make this film possible. For many of these interviewees, we started out as strangers, but grew closer through a shared interest in the legacy Maria left behind.

Not only have we learned so much from you all along this journey but we are so excited to share the final film with you in one week!

It truly takes an army of people to get a project like this accomplished. Without each of these individuals, we would not have been able to make this possible. From our professors, to Maria's family and friends, to Indigenous activists to "super fans," we have been truly inspired by everyone's help and support.
