Voices Reveal The Heart of Bona's Basketball Tradition
Below find snapshots of the 35+ interviews recorded to date. We've traveled thousands of miles and now halfway home, yet many noteworthy and key interviews with players, coaches, staff, alumni and community members need to be completed. With days of filming and months of editing needed to reach completion, PROJECT UNFURL requires time, travel and assistance. As Bonaventure enters a new era, our taking time now, while we can, matters enormously to completing this journey.
