Hi Everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that my feature-length documentary "A Friend Indeed - The Bill Sackter Story" will be having its World Premiere on Saturday June 7, 2008 at Hancher Auditorium in Iowa City.

This World Premiere will be especially meaningful since June will mark the 25th anniversary since Bill's passing (here in Iowa City). Now after 25 years, the world will finally get to know the real Bill Sackter! Barry and Bev Morrow will fly in from California for the premiere, and many other people that were close friends of Bill will be there as well.

It is going to be a very special night, with a screening of the feature-length documentary (90 minutes), followed by Q&A with the filmmaker (me), as well as Barry Morrow and others. Then there will be a reception in the lobby where you can meet the people involved with the documentary, as well as many friends of Bill that will be back in Iowa City, the community where Bill came to live and thrive.

I encourage you to order your tickets now (before it's too late) by calling Hancher or visiting the website - www.BillSackter.com. Hancher Auditorium is an incredible venue to have the World Premiere of this inspiring documentary, so I hope you can make it to the event!

All the best,

Lane Wyrick, director/editor

    I am looking forward to this movie.
    I am so glad some people do care about keeping his memory alive.

  2. Steve and I, and friends, attended this "world premier" of the "Bill Sackter Story" and we would like to congratulate you - all of you.

    The other day I made this comment on our blog: I've read Lane's entry "The Documentary Begins" on the Bill Sachter Documentary Blog and I have no doubt this is a labor of love. Let's hope the audience loves it as well.

    Well, I was right. This documentary is clearly a labor of love - the love of many. And judging by the laughter and the standing "O", the audience loved it as well.

    Good luck!
