Joining Kauffman are fellow directors Jane Gillooly (Today The Hawk Takes One Chick), Lauren Shaw (AngkorÕs Children), and Beth Murphy (The List). This wonderfully diverse panel will offer unique, in-depth perspectives on what it takes to overcome the obstacles of creating a film in a foreign culture on the other side of the globe.
