Hey! OLD MAN is playing before Dennis Hopper’s Directorial debut, EASY RIDER on the Criterion Channel, Filmstruck. Check it out when you have the chance. I am unbelievably honored, speechless and am in utter aw over this. Thank you to the Criterion crew for having me over, letting me into their film closet, letting me speak about my influences such as Cher, my mom and everything in between and for just supporting the arts. Onward to more films and art making! Thank you to my amazing, supportive crew, most who went to RISD with me: Jonathan Seligson, Michaeala Olsen, Melissa Loyola, Liesje Kraai, Isam Prado, Chris Barret for introducing me to the right people and finally Marlin Marynick who was very close with Manson and who wrote Manson Now. Thank you for letting me into you wonderful life.

Well. This happened. It’s been like a surreal dream…

The film I produced with an amazing team in 2012 narrated by the one and only, recently passed, Charles Manson, OLD MAN will be distributed by the infamous Criterion Channel’s FilmStruck. It will play before Dennis Hopper’s feature debut, Easy Rider. It is a rather perfect pairing.

1969 saw the release of Dennis Hopper’s Easy Rider and the media circus ignited by the Manson murders, two seismic cultural events that cast a shadow on the freewheeling good vibes of the hippie era. This program brings together two films that capture the spirit of that chaotic year. In the 2012 experimental documentary Old Man, Brooklyn-based artist Leah Shore combines eye-popping animation with never-before-heard phone calls that Charles Manson made from jail to the infamous cult leader and Canadian author Marlin Marlin M. Marynick. In his directorial debut, Hopper created one of the great American road movies, a counterculture sensation that mixed New Wave-inspired aesthetics, a bold rock soundtrack, and star-making performances by Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson.
