Personal Quotes (1)

[on being producer of the HBO documentary Children of God: Lost and Found (2007), which follows the rise of the Children of God cult] River Phoenix wasn't an inspiration, or anything, he was just some boy who got overexposed by the media. I'm not making this documentary for ratings, either. It's just something I'm involved in. It's near my heart, these members".
