 It felt good to get the St. Kateri video done.  I reconnected with the footage and found some real interview gems.  I'm conflicted whether naming Kateri a saint will make it into the fine cut.  Total running time (goal is 60 minutes) considerations means many stories won't be make it into the fine cut.  That said, the currency of the St. Kateri story, the connection to the movie and how it helps answer the question of whether TQ got what he was looking for in his quest are good arguments for trimming other sections (cut, cut, cut!) to fit this story into the film.  Thanks for tuning in.
