THE GREATEST COURTROOM DRAMA OF ALL TIME!

Ar.

Q.

CH ►

a

Truman Capote and the Maysles Brothers, shooting With Love from Truman

JN: What's a common ques-
tion you encounter from
young filmmakers?
AM: They ask, "Can you really tell the
truth with the presence of a camera?" I
think you can if it's done with careful-
ness and respect for the person you're
filming.

JN: What do you think of
the work of Michael Moore,
the Michigan native who
made Sicko?
AM: It's appalling how people
are needlessly suffering and dying
because the government hasn't come
forward to help them out. Maybe we
can rectify that by spreading the word
about what's really going on.

JN: Is there a common
factor in the subjects you
cover?
AM: There's something in the subject
matter that harkens back to some
early experience in my life — some
craving, some parallel or some mirror
to my family.

JN: Is there a film - yours
or anybody else's - that
you like to see over and
over again?
AM: Any good documentary
demands that you see it over and over
again because you can't catch it all in
one viewing. I met a woman who saw
[Grey Gardens] 120 times. When I met
Bill Moyers, he said he's seen Salesman
13 times.

JN: Are there any current
issues that you think ought
to be covered in film but
have not been?
AM: There are many issues that have
been covered but not enough — all
the things that are being talked about
in Washington, such as global warm-

ing, educational problems, medical
coverage.

JN: Are you working on any
new films?
AM: Several. One is about a major
and longstanding piece of anti-
Semitism over the so-called blood-
libel accusation — namely, the totally
unfounded accusation that Jews kill
Christian children to take the blood
and mix it into matzahs sold every
Passover. Hezbollah has come up with
a film about that, and it is distributed
all over the world by satellite televi-
sion. My film will be completed as
soon as I get more financing for it.
I'm also making a film where I get
on long-distance trains that go on
two or three days. I'm going through
a half dozen different countries, and
as I walk through each train, I'll find
somebody on the train who tells a
story about to take place when he or
she gets off the train. The film is a col-
lection of a half dozen short stories of
ordinary people in all different walks
of life.

COMPLETE KITCHEN RENOVATION a seemingly difficult protect to live through - turned out to
be anything but difficult for Lauren and Randy lesson... in tact, it was quite the opposite.

-

"It didn't interfere at all with our everyday lives," explained Lauren, who said she enjoyed welcoming
the Gittleman team into her home and was sad to see them leave. "They're such nice people, and so
easy to work with."

Lauren and Randy weighed all the possibilities before deciding on remodeling their Bloomfield Hills home,
even entertaining the thought of moving. But after being introduced to Gittleman by an architect they
were working with, they quickly changed their minds and hired Gittleman to handle the entire renovation.

"It was easier to have an all-in-one,
one-stop shop," explained Lauren. "
And felt more comfortable and secure
having only one company in my house
as opposed to hundreds of people."

Lauren really enjoyed the convenience of Gittleman's

in-house cabinetry lines and the assistance of the interior

designer. "She came with me to all of the stores and
helped me pick out everything," she said of her
completely redesigned kitchen that now boasts updated
cabinetry, appliances, islands and loads of natural light.

"It's absolutely beautiful! It's beyond my wildest dreams.
It went from an 80s-style kitchen to an expansive space
that's traditional yet eclectic," Lauren exclaimed, noting
that she looks forward to one day working with
Gittleman again.

So when the time comes to turn your living space into
space that fits you, don't move out, move up with a
call to Gittleman.

JUST ASK THE LESSONS.
