“My grandfather has a unique way of looking at the world. He was my saving grace and has always understood me to the fullest. Grandpa has taught me that we all have potential to be the best that we can be. The hug that I got from him after I shared this film with him was unbelievable, “Marquardt says. “The recognition from my grandfather is the best reward I could ever have. No trophy could ever replace the special honor that it is for me to be able to showcase his legacy in this film.”
“This is My Long Island” makes its debut next week, on March 27 at the Bellmore Movies for its select audience. Look for it to soon be coming to a film festival near you.
