Critical Praise:
“Brilliantly Honest...they will come back to this film decades from now." -Will Bagley - Utah Historian

"Beautifully produced...weaves and tightens into a shocking web of injustice. Five stars!” -Phil Hall (Film Threat)

"Genuinely remarkable...Burying the Past is astute and brave and, contrary to the current fashion in
documentaries, fastidiously fair to all concerned. I give it an A." - Philip Martin

Important Update: Hello! This is Brian Patrick, Producer/ Director of the movie "Burying The Past: Legacy of The Mountain Meadows Massacre."
I am writing to ask for your help. I have been trying very, very hard to get "Burying The Past: Legacy of The Mountain Meadows Massacre" broadcast on Public Television. I believe this is a story that deserves a nationwide audience. I receive numerous e-mails asking when the film is going to be on PBS from people who think this is a film that should play on a national level. The film is under consideration right now for a PBS program called “P.O.V.” which stands for "Point of View." I have been told that my only chance is a grassroots movement by people writing in to P.O.V. and asking them to broadcast it. If you are moved by the film, I would be so grateful if you would be kind enough to take the time to write something on it’s behalf. You can e-mail P.O.V. your thoughts at their e-mail address: pov@pbs.org
If you would prefer to send a letter through the mail, their address is:
P.O.V./Talking Back
P.O. Box 5034
