Exploring Biographical Documentaries
Jon Kean & Anne Stein, the director/editor team behind the documentaries Swimming in Auschwitz and After Auschwitz, will be presenting their experiences working in the biographical documentary genre. They will discuss the creative and technical strategies and decisions that were used to bring these historically significant films to life.
Jon, who started in the theatre world in LA and New York, has been a filmmaker since his directing debut Kill the Man opened at Sundance in 1999. He is currently in production on two new documentaries, including a project about Rwanda, 25 years post-genocide.
Anne started her editing career in the sound department of Milos Forman’s film, Hair. As an editor, she has worked extensively with Freida Lee Mock as well as other Los Angeles based directors. She has always gravitated to projects that reflect a social and emotional sensibility in line with her personal values.
The Latest Solutions From OWC
