A poignant engaging documentary entwining us with the past,

This review is from: Walt & El Grupo (DVD)
I often find myself looking for old pictures and film of modern places to see how they've changed and to connect with the time locked in those images. This documentary achieves that with enveloping images and people and their progeny making the time and place come alive. The juxtaposition of the elderly survivors of this adventure with their youthful images connects us to their experiences. I found myself being brought to tears from the nostalgia and recollections of the participants as though I was on their journey along with them.
I'm not an obsessed fan of Walt and his creative team per se, but this shows another human side to them presented in a way worthy of their artistry and sense of discovery and creative evolution through adventure.
I would recommend this to anyone with an interest in the past, who is an artist, and a student of the connected nature of humanity across generations.
