‘Say What!: A Geriatric Proposal’ filmmaker Aaron Weinstein
Leading up to the 28th Washington Jewish Film Festival, we asked our filmmakers a few questions about their featured films.
In this edition, Director Aaron Weinstein discusses Say What!: A Geriatric Proposal
What inspired you to tell the story of your subject or the story depicted in your film?
What was a particular obstacle you faced while making this film?
Getting the production crew to do their jobs in a timely fashion given the production budget. That’s a joke. There was no production budget.
What do you want audiences to walk away with after screening your film?
It would be terrific if the film helps dispel some misconceptions about the esoteric and romanticized image of an artist’s life. That and not asking for their money back.
Why do you think Washington, DC is a valuable location to screen your film?
DC and the surrounding areas are filled with sophisticated, interesting people, and screening a film for an intelligent viewing audience is valuable, wherever and whenever you can find one.
What films or filmmakers have been the most influential to you?
Why are Jewish-interest films important today?
