By Hannah Bonecutter Premieres this September 18, 2021

Make sure to check this event as the official public release of "Minstrel Vs Puppet", which has been around the world in over 24 film festivals and competitions, reaching the Cannes Film Festival in France where judges stated: "I found myself going back and forth in terms of who I thought was supposed to be the primary and secondary speaking voices of the piece, and empathizing, in turns, with both. And that's evidence of exceptional storytelling... Don't get attached to your organizing business Ms. Bonecutter, Hollywood is calling."
