Personal Quote:

[on Intent to Destroy: Death, Denial & Depiction (2017) and the Armenian Genocide] I hope I open people's hearts and get people to start talking about it... Do I think a movie is going to change the overall dynamic? Probably not, but it will help people to have a dialogue about it, and that's always useful and healthy. [2017] See more »

Trivia:

Chronicled his experiences throughout the tumultuous three-year journey of making the award-winning "Metallica: Some Kind of Monster" in his book "Metallica: This Monster Lives", published in 2004 by St. Martins Press. See more »
