LIVE YOUR DREAM: The Taylor Anderson Story by Reggie Life
LIVE YOUR DREAM is a story about Taylor Anderson and all the young people who travel the world trying to make a difference. Taylor was an extraordinary American who dedicated herself to teaching Japanese children, living her dream right up to the events of March 11, 2011, when she perished after an earthquake and tsunami in Japan that no one could have expected. The film celebrates her life and also the life of Monty Dickson, the other American English teacher who was lost during the tragedy. LIVE YOUR DREAM is about hope and the future. These two young people sought to build a bridge between the US and Japan, a bridge that others will continue to build in their honor.  (2013, 85 minutes)
