Unclaimed was selected to open the WESTDOC Conference with an exclusive screening on September 16. Hailed by industry insiders as the comprehensive, "go-to" conference for the documentary and reality communities, WESTDOC selects only one documentary each year to screen. Many thanks to WESTDOC co-founders and industry leaders Chuck Braverman and Richard Propper for giving Unclaimed this honor in 2013!
An excerpt from the press release distributed by WESTDOC today:
"The WESTDOC Conference (Sept. 15-18 at the Landmark) continues its tradition of presenting complex, timely and compelling feature documentaries at the upcoming fourth annual conference. WESTDOC co-founders Chuck Braverman and Richard Propper are thrilled to present Unclaimed's West Coast premiere. Hailed by critics, Unclaimed is a dramatic and riveting new documentary, directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Jorgensen of Myth Merchant Films, which chronicles the dramatic and emotional journey of war-torn Vietnam veteran Tom Faunce, who has dedicated his life "to leaving no man behind." Faunce's search is captured via a masterfully crafted story of two men whose lives intersect through the burdens of war."
