Ithaca College alumnus Shai Ben-Dor has spent over three years making his documentary film, “The Long Trail Out”. The film centers around 70-year-old Tim Buchanan, a longtime youth worker and mountaineer, who speaks about his life as a closeted gay man. WRFI News Contributor Michayla Savitt spoke with Shai about his inspiration for the film, Tim's experience coming out, and filming on the 23-mile long Presidential Traverse.
