"Shangku is nothing short of captivating, compelling & beautiful ... an inspiring life project beautifully capsulated on film! it churned my soul throughout & many moments brought me to tears. the vistas, the faces, the chats, the music ...... You captured some really raw, beautiful & moving shots that resonated deeply w/ me. and Ben ... I guess it should come as no surprise as I get to know you better, that you are a complete natural in front of the camera as well as a gracious & heartfelt narrator. Once again, I didn't want your film to end."
