Karl W Hoffman- LIVING ON THE BORDER Shows in Paris

Karl W Hoffman- LIVING ON THE BORDER Shows in Paris

“Living on the Border” Shows at International Border and Immigration Conference in Paris

Every developed country that borders or can be accessed by a 3rd world country has a critical border security and immigration problem. Many european countries are facing the same issues.

Interesting enough, a known fact in the film business, is that objective documentaries don’t go too far. Without courting one side or the other while riling up the opposite view, a good objective presentation just doesn’t get the attention here as it does internationally. I guess the American public is so used to being entertained, that major media just has to sensationalize story segments slanted toward the particular viewpoint of their viewers. No thought process is required with this agenda so compassion fades and the gap widens.

I am honored to be a guest speaker and take part in this international exchange of ideas. It is very important to present an objective insight to the border and immigration debacle from here in Southern Arizona. I look forward to bringing new ideas and possibilities back to my documentary series and opening new discussions here at my Tucson Citizen blog.

Thanks to all the wonderful people, organizations, and government agencies, who have showed such great support and encouragement for the “Living on the Border” documentary series.

I do owe a special thanks to my wife Audrey for all her support and understanding of the importance of this project so as of now she is my official assistant and will have to accompany me to Paris.

Penny Porter Author Storyteller- New 2009 Second Editions Released!

      Penny Porter Story Teller  New 2009 Second Editions Released


       HEARTSTRINGS AND TAIL-TUGGERS   340 pages, $18 

      “On the barren stretches that separated our Arizona ranch from  the historical gold-mining towns of Tombstone, Gleeson and Bisbee, teepee-like ant hills, eerie mirages, and devel-winds spinning up dry river beds created an alien dimenstion to life…add to that the dust filled air, cactuses, mequite, and world in shades of gray.  Listen to the voices and heartbeats of all God’s creatures that lived and loved and brightened our world each day.”

      Chistropher Willcox, Editor-in-Chief of Reader’s Digest Reviews. 

      “Penny has made more people laugh and cry with her animal stories than any other author whose work has appeared in Reader’s Digest. She is an original, her book is warm, funny and wise.” 

      ADOBE SECRETS  104 pages,  $12 

      “On the northwest corner of the desert ranch where dust devils dance and yucca bells chime, a crubling adobe ruin bakes like a muffin in the searing Arizona sun.  Its mud-brick walls are split and scarred by time.  Chunks of motar and shards of purple glass skirt the old foundation, and the weather-beaten door sags like a broken jar, creaking and groaning on rusted hinges in dismal harmony with tattered wires and a dented stovepipe the clatter like casanets across the corrugated metal roof.  Who could ever live here?” 

      Philip Osborne, Assistant Managing Editor of Reader’s Digest Reviews 

      “Penny Porter…what a storyteller!”
