IRA

A preview of this year’s video showcase will be featuring a fellow UMD alumni, Paul Jensen. He created this award winning documentary-short and wanted to debut it at our festival. We are so excited to have this addition with the lineup this year. Please come on down to Zeitgeist Zinema on Tuesday, May 3rd at 6pm.

Film Synopsis: A documentary-short on the life of Ira Sanders, a commodity trader turned educator whose first-hand experiences on 9/11 greatly influence his life.

History of the Project: The film previously had its World Premiere in New York City, in addition to screenings in Los Angeles, Portland, Austin, and more.
