TGR’s Todd Jones Talks About Truth and Healing in Andy Irons: Kissed By God

Finding a heavy truth and portraying it to a wide audience is something every documentary filmmaker aspires to, yet in reality, it’s something that is extremely difficult to pull off.

Kai Lenny’s 20-Foot Airdrop and Other News from the Jaws Competition
