Marc now has a fascinating new documentary called “Unraveled” debuting next week in NYC and LA which explores the downfall of Marc Dreier, a prominent Manhattan attorney, who was convicted of orchestrating a massive fraud scheme.
After the jump,
Marc tells me how surprised he was about Marc Dreier’s personality:
“The most surprising aspect of Marc’s personality was his ability, under house arrest and facing the potential of life imprisonment, to analytically approach his circumstances in a detached, business-like manner, in an effort to gain the information he thought he needed to prepare himself for prison. He approached the remainder of his life in a manner analogous to how an individual prepares for a vacation or business trip. The lawyerly aspects of his personality penetrated every facet of his preparation for prison, including the crafting of the arguments to the judge seeking a sentence that would allow him not to die in prison. He is not an individual who is apt to show emotion even in the harshest of circumstances.”
UNRAVELED will be released on April 13th in NYC at the East Village Theater, Laemmle’s Music Hall 3 in LA. Additionally, the film will premiere simultaneously on VOD. There will be Q&A talkbacks with the filmmakers that will take place after select screenings throughout opening weekend.
You have to admire Marc’s passion and drive! Congrats Marc!
