This film, as you will see, was directed by Roy Hart live on camera.The film was later edited by it's producer and cameraman Dennis Miller assisted by Roy Hart. It was during this process that Roy added his commentary to the film. The resulting documentary represents one of the very few documents (and the only piece of film) that Roy felt was a fair representation of his work at that time.
