The Director Within

"What a treat to read these interviews with so many directors I have known and to learn more about them, their courage, individuality, compassion, vision, insight, and wisdom and to hear the shared theme of love for the media and love as a theme in their lives and their work.”
—Jeremy Kagan, film and television director
