Movie Review. I had the opportunity to see the premiere of "Girl from Birch Creek," a biography of former Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Rosalie Wahl, the first woman to serve as a member of Minnesota's highest court. The film is written and directed by local filmmaker Emily Haddad and is produced by John Kaul, one of my old partners in legislative hi-jinks and currently a lobbyist for a number of clients. Emily and John's production company--Lightshed Productions--has put together a number of interesting films over the years and this is no exception.
Here is a link to the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SLwMbOfq9c&feature=plcp

Congrats Emily and John! This is a very inspiring piece of work and should be viewed by anyone and everyone interested in Minnesota history.
