“To be an artist means never to avert your eyes.”
-- Akira Kurosawa
In June three new feature documentaries I’ve produced will have their premieres.
Lost for Life, a film I produced about juvenile murderers who are sentenced to life imprisonment without parole, will debut at the Silverdoc Film Festival. The following week it will screen at the Nantucket Film Festival.
Code Black, a documentary I executive produced about ER physicians at the County Hospital at USC, will open at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
And on June 12, Spirit of the Marathon II, Rome, which I also executive produced, will screen in 600 theaters across the country for one night only. You can find the theater where it’s playing closest to you by going to www.marathonmovie.com
Finally, "Interacting with Autism,” the three-year transmedia project funded by the federal Agency for Health Research and Quality (AHRQ) that I am directing with University Professor Marsha Kinder, the Executive Director of the Labyrinth Project at USC, is nearing completion and will be launched publicly in September 2013. When finished, this interactive, video intensive website will contain nearly six hours of material on various aspects of autism. We are very excited by what we have created and are looking forward to its release.
