‪The Seward Market Mural teaser‬‏ – a documentary by Nick Longtin & Dan Sundquist

As part of a Minneapolis community project, members of the Seward/Longfellow neighborhoods are creating a mural over the site of a 2010 triple homicide. A lot of work has gone into the planning and doing of this mural. My friend, Nick Longtin, and I are creating a short documentary in attempts to capture the creativity and altruism of this project.
