[Andrew] Sherburne, along with University of Iowa graduates Tommy Haines (BA cinema and comparative literature, ’05) and John Richard (BS environmental science, ’04), have spent the past 18 months screening their documentary, Saving Brinton, at film festivals and theaters across Iowa and around the world.
