And see it for years later I edited the footage looked like it was just yesterday but they must business see it and not be. Doesn't fifteen or sixteen was shot and thirteen fourteen area. Well these these dogs. And film festivals and is about the open tomorrow is very emotional for me leading up to two week dog.

Put together well you know what what on this little Brawley artists and wanted to do that also put my case. Own up to my mistakes and there moments I saw one of my kids understand you know this is where you fall to come from this and what I dean. Don't realize we made betterment decisions in your life. You've got your kids there in the doctor. Having seen it. And that the LT kind of bond and connect with them and us it's four years. For kids 101112 is like a life science that this is going to be a really big chunk of their lives. Eight kids with some. I'm jumping at it like always because Kong ago is a few emotional ones out the ago.

And home it'll be better you know maybe and it wasn't around. Fully gets Carlo emotional announcement won't look at what's great about the documentaries like it's oh well I'm still a work in progress. It's not a finished product is is like this is we are Max valid talking being put us ending of trying to find myself with passionate. What I plan on doing when no law after the documentary ago. Is this is there is a bit have been blessed has been therapy for me. He's an organ progress. I feel it that was on the big parts it was so relatable and I think we can all relates to so many elements in the dock. I mean not sleep second pick in the NBA drafts I've I was there obviously but. You know did that help you know he's you mention your older kids to help them kind of understand you and see you and and and relate to use it like Kenyon I wasn't close in my dad's so I can relate in that way but I guess I saw on the screen for two hours and really got to understand and I relate more. I think the best thing anybody he would name and its other proof demanding that they can do about it. We've found a solution to do what it did and nestled on target new accused. Through its its its seat but also because what it takes to tangle. Their mothers is involved in the ability to get one it and there's still no omelets are open to all of the putter or the doctor Richard good value policy and what I had the gold Loma life. You know we'll give financially forgo a tie and some of the law wasn't. That's peculiar to the statement carried Kate take back the TARP I just got a little better than not that that that than the big things with this documentary. It is work in progress getting better you know pain or fall. That's the main try to you know. Put put for what does doctor.

And the stuff with your mom and there you get you got very emotional and there I'm sure it's been emotional ever since. It was again you mentioned being honest and you were so honest it is as such said it seem like such a double edged sword. That obviously you can just talent field inspiration that she was to you but the same time you know. There were there were you know ups and downs like any parent relationship. Was that the hardest part to kind of put in the documentary. Here whose tough but it's hard to open up. You know if I got that is locked all the books all of us have a store cores but a lot of with the shame. To tell us stories that embarrassed to tell us goers. To help other people and that's on Tuesday meant more mobile pats by opera Mario.
