Very informative.

I have watched this story several times and each time I learn something new. The story still stays fresh and relevant even today. Makes a great Christmas Gift too!

Excellent Documentary

For anyone who is interested in the rich history of Habitat for Humanity, "Briars" is a must. The story is well told and gives proper credit to Koinonia Farm's having given birth to what we know today as an impressive international organization. Also, for anyone interested in the civil rights struggles, this is also a "must see." The documentary is beautifully produced with wonderful historic material. Faith Fuller has given the world a wonderful historical document.
