Quotes

"We were all on this ship; we were all in Palestine and in Israel...The world is destroyed, and Israelis and Palestinians are packed together in their frozen, floating capsule, built out of the giant wall encasing them."
Schaefer added: "As we've collaborated on a lot of the same projects over the years, I've always been taken with the way Jump Cut approaches their craft, their passion for film and our shared sensibility about design. I'm excited to work with Stephen and his team to make the print division a place which the industry can consistently turn to for outstanding creative ideas."
"Long ago we resolved never to let the last few minutes of Leon Klinghoffer's life define who he was as a man, husband and father," they write. "Opera patrons will only see Leon Klinghoffer presented as a victim - he was so much more."
