Origins: Jewish Film Institute Residency, Summer 2023

Thank you to the Jewish Film Institute for spotlighting my in-progress documentary “Janis Ian & The Art of Song.” I’m heartened to be welcomed into the Jewish Film Institute’s supportive and enriching filmmakers’ community, and honored to be making a film about such a masterful artist and beautiful human being–Janis Ian. A shout-out to my cohorts.  Much gratitude to Janis Ian, our extraordinary array of interview participants, and my wonderfully thoughtful and engaged collaborators including Alessandra Pasquino, Pierre Hauser, Brooke Wentz, Matthew Wilder, Ryan Larkin, Dinamita Post, and our incredibly professional and hardworking crew. I couldn’t be doing this without you. We’re still very much in progress and have lots of work to do. I will keep you updated on our progress!
