Dear Shaded Viewers,
New York Magazine’s October 2005 issue sent shockwaves through the literary world when it unmasked wunderkind JT LeRoy, who captivated icons and luminaries inter- nationally. It turned out LeRoy didn’t exist. He was dreamed up by 40-year-old punk rocker and phone sex operator, Laura Albert.
Jeff FEUERZEIG is an award-winning director whose feature film The Devil and Daniel Johnston won the U.S. Documentary Directing Award at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. The film is a portrait of a schizophrenic musician who overcame his private demons to develop an avid international following. FEUERZEIG also directed The Real Rocky for ESPN Films’ acclaimed 30 for 30Series, which views the Chuck WEPNER story through the documentary lens.
See you there,
