A Look into the Look Back Library

In November 2018, filmmaker Richie Wolfe traveled to San Diego to take “A Look Inside the Look Back Library” headquarters and inner workings. Like a war correspondent, Richie was embedded with our day to day activities and captured much of what we do for Look Back over a 6 day period. The film was fine tuned into the spring of 2019 and premiered at Escapist in Kansas City on April 20th. The viewer will get insight into how things work at the headquarters and a glimpse into our public outreach efforts of building libraries and putting on magazine exhibits.
