Film Reviews


“This is the story of what happened when my Dad pursued his version of the American dream to build RawFaith.  With hard work, ingenuity, perseverance and sacrifice he was also willing to challenge great odds and to accept the price for pursuing his goal. In the end he lost everything that should matter in this world, at least for a while.” ~ Aaron McKay, Oldest Son

“I found it to be a compelling story of a man who lost everything to his faith and the unrelenting force of the sea on his dream. George’s relationship with his sons was particularly heartening. Poignant and captivating. Thank you for sharing their story.” ~ Molly Harvey via Facebook
