Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me

Added on by Erick Grau.

Raising money for someone else’s project is a challenging exercise.  What is easy and important for me is defending the safe space of a really wonderful artist.  Isotope Films, Chiemi Karasawa’s production company, has made many films.  Although she’s been hired and often-awarded for her producing in the past, Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me marks Chiemi’s directing debut.  Both Chiemi Karasawa and Elaine Stritch are vulnerable and victorious and I count my lucky stars to be, as they say in the biz, “attached”.
