The Spector 45 Documentary Premier Was a Success. What's Next?

Jonathan Buchner's 45 was screened for the public for the first time last night. And for those who came to either screening at 8 or 10, it was hard to walk back out onto a muggy night without having a strong mix of emotions floating in your mind.

Assembled in the large space that is 2625 Main Street in Deep Ellum, almost every seat was full for the first screening. Introduced by Frank Campagna Sr. and featuring comments from Buchner and Scott Mankoff, the tone was light but urgent, welcoming those who gathered. But when the conversation turned to the topic of suicide, Mankoff and Campagna strongly stressed reaching out to people - including anyone in the audience - if you're having suicidal thoughts.
