Aspen Public Radio’s Rob St. Mary spoke to McDougall Jones about the film recently. She says she wanted to bring the film to Aspen at her earliest opportunity not only because she’s from here, but because the community helped to make the film possible.&nbsp;</p><p> Thu, 05 Jun 2014 19:24:39 +0000 Rob St. Mary 19585 at http://aspenpublicradio.org Aspen Native Returns with "Beautiful" Film Non-Profit in the Spotlight: True Media Foundation, Part 3 http://aspenpublicradio.org/post/non-profit-spotlight-true-media-foundation-part-3 <p></p><p>Terra Martellaro is a former student of True Media Foundation's after-school program,&nbsp;<em>BeHeard!</em>.
