#Witness11 is the story of Bertold Brecht during the #RedScare.
A short film about the testimony of Bertolt Brecht during the height of the Red Scare. Mitchell is also launching a Kickstarter campaign to help finance the movie's post-production. "Witness 11" is from Brecht's point of view as he testifies to the House Un-American Activities Committee.
Director: Sean Mitchell
Director of Photography: Chris Lawing
Line Producer: Angie Lawing
About the Production:
"What originally caught my attention was the actual testimony of Bertolt Brecht and his ability to navigate through the situation while maintaining his honor. It is fascinating to hear a family man, in an incredibly tough situation, try to stay out of prison without betraying himself, or his friends." - Sean Mitchell
The movie is currently in production. We're looking for funding to complete post-production.
