Note: No trailer found. I found mention of the short film on the FredomCenter.org website. It appears to be part of an exhibit they have, commissioned by the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and sponsored by The Boeing Company. “The film is shown in an “experiential” theater, complete with crickets chirping in the background.”
