BEYOND WILDER DREAMS is a new film about L. Douglas Wilder, who was the first Black governor in the country. There’s already one documentary about his political career, but this one puts the emphasis on his personal experiences, including his painting skills. I’m joined by writer/director Brian Bullock and DP Ryan Pace.
