Operation Kino 111: Apologizing For Armageddon And Falling Back In Love With Tribeca

This week we are shocked and horrified to learn that Michael Bay apologized on behalf of Armageddon, and aim to set the record straight on its greatness. Katey talks about her experience at the Indie Grits Film Festival, David is feeling more optimistic than ever about the Tribeca Film Festival, and we ask for your help in supporting our friend Ed Douglas in his fight against cancer.
