Old House Soul

Posted by Don Manley on

This is a promo clip from the movie: "Old House Soul." Michel Schtakleff and I completed the movie in 2010. The movie explores the work and advocacy of the late Steve Tyson; an architectural preservationist and advocate in RI. "Old House Soul" premiered at the RI international film festival and aired for a while on RI PBS. We hope to post the full-length movie on YouTube soon.
