Claude Lanzmann: Spectres of the Shoah

We are thrilled and honoured that the film has been shortlisted for the highly prestigious Grierson Awards in the Best Newcomer Documentary category! And our thanks go out to all The Grierson Trust members who watched and voted for the film. John Grierson, a pioneer of non-fiction filmmaking, is credited with coining the term “documentary” in a 1926 review, so to be affiliated with such a legacy represents tremendous recognition.

I’m thrilled to have been a part of two films nominated for a 2016 Primetime Emmy Award! Big congratulations to the teams on EVERYTHING IS COPY Nora Ephron: Scripted & Unscripted (HBO Documentary Films, 2 nominations) and Walt Disney (American Experience PBS, 1 nomination) for creating two wonderful films. Check out the full list of nominees from the Emmys / Television Academy site below:
