I am a filmmaker and writer - basically a storyteller. I love history. To uncover gems of historical information that helps us to better understand our modern world is the driving motivation behind the work that I do. My "Movie Lovers" film selections are drawn from many different genres, however -- not just documentaries. I love and am inspired by many films for various reasons. So here it goes!
