"Colli K. Christante is the most compelling, stimulating and charismatic interviewer with whom I have ever had the pleasure of working. She had really done her homework and the depth of her questions propelled our talk together into surprising áreas. I found myself thinking about and talking about issues that I had never even approached in interviews before. Colli has a unique, disarming and totally charming way of getting to the heart of the matter and I enjoyed myself immensely. After seeing the tape of the interview, I felt and still feel that Colli is the best interviewer that I have ever experienced." Stephen Simon - veteran Hollywood producer of "What Dreams May Come", "Somewhere in Time", "Indigo Children", "Conversations with God" - Spiritual Cinema Group.
