Festival Coverage from the Albuquerque Journal of a film in this year’s festival
Anderson’s love of spreading love began as a vow that his wife would never feel unloved, unappreciated or insecure like he had during his turbulent childhood.
A short documentary of his life and love titled “Love in the Valley” by filmmaker Kel Cruz and produced by the city’s One Albuquerque Media explains that he was abandoned and sent to an orphanage as a baby, and later adopted by a family torn by violence.
“That abandonment sticks with you,” Anderson said. “It brings a loneliness and insecurity that you are not loved.”
