Re: [outsidermusic] Fwd: Channel Zero and the Bad Poets Society return this Friday Night
- I saw this as part of the Hot docs film festival in Toronto a few years back and spent some time with Chris Bagley afterwards. The film is a wonderful labour of love and Wesley was 100% into it.I loved it. Too bad Wesley never got to see it.-Mark
