  1. Thank you Ira. I only meant to watch a few minutes of the tribute to Joan Micklin Silver and I could not turn away. I watched the entire memorial and I was riveted. I thought I knew her work, but I realize how much more there was to know. The tributes from her collaborators, friends, and families were so meaningful, I am in awe of this amazing filmmaker and director. I wish I had known her.

  2. I am extremely grateful to have been included in this testimony to a wonderful woman, a brilliant artist, a grand mother, and a true friend. I will always be grateful for Joan.
