MU

One bold city, one massive outdoor museum, 100 unique brick walls with rich stories to tell.

Filmmaker’s statement

As a journalist who covered the arts for 20 years for television news, it was a natural evolution to direct documentaries profiling artists and their wonderful work for the screen. I have always been moved by the story and the ability to take the audience behind the scenes to see something rare.

By lifting the curtain and saying, “come with me,” I feel it’s a great opportunity to enrich, engage and share my own enthusiasm for the arts.
