CREDIT: WRITER / PRODUCER / DIRECTOR
As my time on Sid Bernstein Presents… approached its end, the producer-directors with whom I was working, Jason Ressler and Evan Strome, were approached through a mutual friend by a documentary neophyte who wanted to produce a film on the United Nations. This was not too long after the Oil for Food scandal had been exposed and even though it had dominated the news for a short time, I felt there was a lot more lurking beneath the surface. I took a meeting with this documentary newcomer, Ami Horowitz and from there we realized we could join forces on a great exposé of the failures of the United Nations. I came on as co-writer-producer-director and U.N. Me was born. After 3 years of filming and editing with some of the best documentary crew around, we were happy to premiere our film at IDFA 2009 where we received some great coverage.
