  Host Frank Stasio talks with Margaret Byrne, the film's director, and Ian Kibbe, a producer of the film, about the stories of the families featured and the status of the community. "Raising Bertie" screens Saturday, April 9 at 4:30 p.m. at the Fletcher Theatre in Durham as a part of the Full Frame film festival.
