We all have a story. Here's ours.
When I was about a year old my father Steven worked as a location scout and assistant editor for the landmark independent flick Return of the Secaucus Seven, written and directed by John Sayles.
The movie was made by a group of friends for $60,000, shot in North Conway, New Hampshire on 16mm film. Not only did my dad work behind the camera, he also secured a role as an enthusiastic bar singer at the end of the movie. Yours truly had a walk-on role as a baby, also named Benjamin.
In 1997, Return of the Secaucus Seven was deemed to be an important piece of American film heritage and added to the National Film Registry at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.
