Dear Zachary: 10th Anniversary Edition
On November 5, 2001, Dr. Andrew Bagby was murdered in a parking lot in western Pennsylvania; the prime suspect, his ex-girlfriend Dr. Shirley Turner, promptly fled the United States for St. John's, Canada, where she announced that she was pregnant with Andrew's child. She named the little boy Zachary. Filmmaker Kurt Kuenne, Andrew's oldest friend, began making a film for little Zachary as a way for him to get to know the father he'd never meet. But when Shirley Turner was released on bail in Canada and was given custody of Zachary while awaiting extradition to the U.S., the film's focus shifted to Zachary's grandparents, David & Kathleen Bagby, and their desperate efforts to win custody of the boy from the woman they knew had murdered their son. What happened next, no one ever could have foreseen…
For this new edition of DEAR ZACHARY, director Kurt Kuenne revisited the original mini-DV files, Super 8mm and 16mm transfers, still images and original source files to reconstruct the entire film shot by shot. The film was re-color timed and re-mixed in 5.1 surround from its original sound elements.
