I'm delighted to be working with Executive Producer Johannah Lyons Castleman on Life According to Ludwig, a documentary film about Ludwig Kuttner. Principal photography started last Wednesday at Estouteville Farm near Esmont, Virginia, and we shall continue filming -in and around Charlottesville- during the next six weeks. However, we're not yet ruling out a trip to Berlin, Munich, and Prague to complete the portrayal of a life that began in Bavaria on the eve of War World II. Over the last few weeks, in preparation for the project, I had the opportunity to get to know Ludwig at a personal level, sharing meals, jokes, and stories, a fruitful dialogue that continues in person and via texting in a back and forth on the wee hours of the night. I'm eager to learn more about Ludwig and about his commitment to improving city life, and the Arts in Charlottesville.
