Exciting news from Brian Gersten (MFA '16) —⁣

"A couple years back Ira Deutchman took a chance and hired me to edit his directorial debut "Searching for Mr. Rugoff", a feature documentary about the life of notorious movie mogul Donal Rugoff. The film will be opening in select theaters on August 13th, and I couldn't be happier about it. If you care about independent film, and the survival of independent movie theaters, make sure to check this one out."⁣
⁣
SEARCHING FOR MR. RUGOFF chronicles the colorful history of Donald S. Rugoff, who ran a chain of legendary theaters in New York including the Paris Theater (where the film will play). The film premiered at Doc NYC in 2019 to rave reviews. All proceeds from the release will be donated to the not-for-profit art house theaters presenting the film across the country, so get your tickets and #supportyourlocalcinema! 🌟⁣
