At first glance, the life of a film director might seem glamorous and otherworldly. But Scott Kirschenbaum has chosen a path that is as real, raw, and of the earth as you can get. On this week’s episode of Making Ways, Scott talks about how he left mainstream screenwriting behind for the pursuit of cause-driven documentaries like his upcoming film Of Woman Born, an intimate depiction of one woman’s labor and birth of her child, and the Alzheimer's documentary You’re Looking at Me Like I Live Here and I Don’t, which aired nationally on PBS. You’ll hear about his childhood love of performance, his work producing hip-hop musicals, the smorgasbord of creative posts he held after college, and how he approaches mental health and friends in need. Listen in for tips for emerging filmmakers and so much more with Scott Kirschenbaum.
