After four years of multiple trips to Poland and over a year of post-production, The Return, a film I shot with director Adam Zucker about four young women who discover their Jewish roots after being raised Catholic in Poland, starts its festival run in New York this month.
I follow Fred Wilson’s blog AVC pretty regularly. He’s a VC with Union Square Ventures, which has companies such as Tumblr, Etsy, SoundCloud and Hailo in their portfolio. One of Fred’s recent posts was about what he learned from USV’s outgoing analyst Brian Watson, who wrote a fabulous piece on Medium titled, Post-Money Evaluations: What I’ve Learned from Two Years at USV.
It’s an honor to be part of the incredible team that won an Emmy Award for the documentary, Hunger in the Valley of Plenty. The film examines the paradox of food insecurity in California’s farm-rich San Joaquin Valley. Congratulations to my talented colleagues Natasha Del Toro, Sasha Khokha, David Ritsher, Shirley Gutierrez and the staffs at KQED and The Center for Investigative Reporting.
