Your film is an awesome accomplishment, Minna
Dufton clearly respects her subject and has painted a brilliant portrait of the commanding woman.
Dufton treats this very personal account with a sensitivity and skill that makes it very identifiable. She emphasises the feelings that come with regaining control, and what it’s like to work incredibly hard and finally achieve a goal.
Such an inspiration. So glad to hear that story.
I love putting the world to rights with you!
A delight to work with. Always cheerful, friendly and professional. Minna’s care and passion are evident in all her work.
