“Homecoming is” Featured by Holy Smokes: Project Film crew HSPF crew created with the help of The City Of Albuquerque, One Albuquerque

We begin by saying thank you, to all the one’s who came out, and trudged with us on this epic adventure. It was not an easy task, with limited training locations, and also limited resources, this was one for the books.

We focused on word, and mission, that reflected what all of us are going through. We never would have imagined the outcome of this year, now we are seeing a future, that is in need of stories to be told, and sharing to continue. Holy Smokes Project Film is teaching our first film crew to assists in our first production, “Homecoming is” a 90 second story of how Indigenous people survive and thrive with spirit, and determination to be safe. Quite the story.
