“Validation” benefactor Launa Boston passes away

Kurt Kuenne Films, Milestones

We are saddened to report the passing of Launa Boston of Lee’s Summit, MO, a benefactor of Kurt’s work who made the short film Validation possible.  Launa saw Kurt’s short film Rent-A-Person at a film festival, listened to his Q&A, and based on nothing more than that, contacted him to say she’d like to help pay for his next short film, knowing full well such endeavors almost never make money.  She later contributed to the completion of Dear Zachary and became an investor in Shuffle.  She is survived by her husband, Danny.  She will be missed.
