Have a Bite with the Guys Who Made America Laugh
For the past 40 years, a group of writers and directors has been meeting for lunch every other Wednesday. The members and their meeting places have changed over the years, but their appetites for the ties that nourish their friendships have remained. LUNCH goes beyond a single meal, and into the lives and successes of each comedy legend.
THE PRESENCE OF THEIR ABSENCE
A Personal and Film Journey
Fred Zaidman, with Donna Kanter
Starting to ask.
Like many children of Holocaust survivors, protecting our parents from the pain of sharing with us their harrowing experiences and loss of family in the Shoah, was a top priority.
That was my case.
Donna Kanter has earned distinction as owner of a film and documentary company, and as writer-producer-director of over two dozen films, including Cold Case Cops, Pope John Paul II’s Vatican, The White House: Behind the Gates, Lucy: Queen of Comedy, and A Civil Action In Pursuit of Justice.
Most recently, she was a cinematographer and writer-producer-director of two feature theatrical documentaries The Presence of Their Absence: A Personal and Film Journey and Lunch.
