Another codetalker documentary

Documentary tells Code Talkers’ storiesLike all good stories, the story of the Navajo Code Talkers is interesting enough to be told over and over by a variety of storytellers.

The most recent storytellers—a Gallup filmmaker, his educator wife, and a group of local middle school pupils—have produced a professional, half-hour documentary DVD that is set to make its public debut on Feb. 12. The film is shaped around the memories of three Navajo Code Talkers: Dr. Roy Hawthorne, Frank Thompson, and Bill Toledo.

“This is focused on them, letting them tell their story,” said Theo Bremer-Bennett, a local graphic designer, musician, filmmaker, and owner of the Glyph Engine design firm.
