For the past four years, Ian has been working on a very personal documentary in the background of the other work he has been doing. When Ian’s friend Kazuko was given 3-4 years to live after being diagnosed with a terminal illness, they decided to document the last years of her life. Kazuko shares her thoughts on money, love, marriage and raising children, all within the greater context of her own life and impending death. The filming on the feature-length documentary, tentatively called “-1287” ended two weeks ago, and the film is currently being edited. Ian has just posted the trailer for “-1287” to his DocumentingIan Channel.
Ian’s documentary “In the Grey Zone” will be available for viewing in the Doc Outlook International Market at this year’s Visions du Reel film festival in Nyon, Switzerland (April 20-27). The market “ensures excellent working conditions for producers, buyers, decision-makers and distributors supported by optimum facilities and cutting edge tools. It fosters contacts for the funding and promotion of films, as well as for networking and for acquiring film rights.” To see the film’s listing, click here.
