"A True Lesson In Humanity" - the second feature length documentary by Wolfgang Busch

According to a Jan. 25, 2007, post on the Winter Guard International website, a historical event took place at the 80th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2006. During the parade, a nation-wide audience of parade watchers were witness to a special performance by the Special Needs Color Guard of America. And there to capture footage of this ground-breaking event was the acclaimed director, Wolfgang Busch.

This past November, the Special Needs Color Guard of America (f/k/a the Florida Special Needs Color Guard) was invited to perform in the 80th Anniversary Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. It was the first time in history that a group of developmentally disabled young adults have ever been invited to participate in this American tradition! While performing in NYC, well-known producer and director, Wolfgang Busch was impressed with the dynamics of the group. He is now coordinating a documentary on the many achievements and exceptional participants of this guard. There is no doubt a documentary will help continue this color guard's message to the world of "bridging the gap."

Following the performance during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Mr. Busch spent the remainder of 2006 and most of 2007 collaborating with the Special Needs Color Guard of America and their sponsors to create the second feature length documentary for Art From The Heart Films. The DVD of this inspiring documentary, A True Lesson In Humanity, is now available for purchase on

We must take this opportunity as the producers of "A True Lesson In Humanity" to say how truly blessed & honored we have been to have worked so diligently on this amazing project with Wolf. Wolf is an amazingly talented, unique, special, and determined filmmaker/director. Easily one of the finest in the world. His insight into the various populations he films is a tremendous match to his sensitivity, kindness, creativity and feelings for those he is filming. Wolf could never work on a project that he did not believe in. His work is not only important to the populations he showcases in his documentaries, but to society as a whole. We, as a society, learn acceptance, compassion, and love by being educated to how others so talented & beautiful live their lives. Wolf is a blessing to all who are fortunate enough to have him in their lives. He has touched so many lives & made & continues to make a true positive difference with his arts in education projects. Yes, it says in the Torah...."To Save A Soul Is To Save The World." And, our darling Wolf, you are not only our best are truly our family. Mere words cannot express the impression you have left on our very special young adults, their families & all you have come in contact with while working on this project. Thank G-D you have come into our lives & may "How Do I Look" & "A True Lesson In Humanity" continue to touch the lives of not only the people these documentaries are about, but to all who view & learn from these films. May G--D Bless you with great health, strength, determination & perseverance to continue your advocacy efforts & your mission....We love you, our darling Wolfala..Always from the heart, ELFALA & JERRALA AND THE GANG
