Dr. Edwin H. Kolodny — chair of the APBD RF’s Scientific Advisory Board — recently joined the Berkshire Jewish Film Festival organizers in a special TalkBack interview to raise the public profile of APBD.

Dr. Kolodny met with the Festival organizers and attendees via Zoom for the interactive TalkBack session which aired on July 7. They touched on a range of topics: the documentary Life Through A Lens, the scope of APBD, the hope on the horizon for people living with APBD…and more!

Life Through A Lens – focusing on the life of Hollywood photographer, Robert Zuckerman, whose “life through a lens” gets turned upside down after he is diagnosed with APBD – premiered at the Berkshire Jewish Film Festival on opening night, July 6th.  Directed by family team, Jeff and Ronete Levenson, the documentary premiered at the Manhattan Film Festival in 2016, received the award for best short documentary at the Los Angeles Reel Film Festival in 2016, and more recently was featured at the Catalina Film Festival, Williamsburg International Film Festival, Red Rock Film Festival, and twenty other festivals.

This year’s Berkshire Jewish Film Festival — presented by Knesset Israel in Pittsfield, MA — was offered on a virtual platform and features 14 full-length and short films about people learning to accept their differences, strong women and girls, and children using their hearts and minds to make the world a better place. These films were streamed on the Festival’s website between July 6 through August 10.

Our thanks to Dr. Kolodny for making the time to join the Berkshire Jewish Film Festival organizers and the attendees in bringing more awareness and understanding to APBD.
