Current News:

I am pleased to announce that Breaking Point:  The War for Democracy in Ukraine, a film I co-wrote and co-directed,will finally be released in theaters. 

It opens in New York city on March 2 at the Cinema Village.

It opens in Los Angeles on March 9 at the Laemmle Theater in Beverly Hills.  https://www.laemmle.com/films/43558

The award-winning documentary is an intimate look at the war and revolution in Ukraine through the eyes of ordinary people who risked their lives to create a more democratic, independent country. Their lives were transformed by the tumultuous revolution on the Maidan, the Russian annexation of Crimea, and the war in eastern Ukraine that followed, which has killed over 10,000 people and left 1.9 million refugees.   The outcome affects not just the future of Ukraine.  As writer Anne Applebaum says, “Ukraine has become a piece of a bigger struggle about the future of European democracy. Can European democracy even survive into the 21st century?”

Interacting with Autism, www.interactingwithautism.com, a transmedia project funded by the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) that I directed with University Professor Marsha Kinder at USC,  continues to attract significant traffic.  The website contains over six hours of  short videos on various aspects of autism and  hours more of interviews with some of the most important experts in the field.
