We Are Moving Stories, the international online community supporting new voices in film, features Director/Producer Melissa Mars for an interview about The Last Touch. They chat about why Mars made the movie, how she explored the theme of connection in a personal and universal way, the overwhelmingly supportive and positive feedback she received for the film…
