For the people who write for this site, watching "Life Itself" was a particularly emotional experience. Though Roger touched the lives of so many people, the Far Flungers are like a family, and we've grieved like a family. When "Life Itself" premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 19, contributors to the Indiegogo campaign to raise completion funds for the film had the opportunity to watch the film and the Sundance Q&A on their computers via a streaming link. There was an immediate outpouring from the Far Flungers.
Michael Mirasol wrote a touching letter to Roger about watching the film. Michał Oleszczyk addressed the particulars of the streaming experience and staying up into the middle of the night in Poland to watch. Olivia Collette wrote about how her own experience helping a cousin with cancer made "Life Itself" all the more powerful for her.
