It stars Steven Weber and Alex Linx. Making his feature directing debut, Eberl starred as an actor in Tim Burton’s “Planet of the Apes” and also had a role in Clint Eastwood’s “Letters from Iwo Jima.” Jon Gerrans from Strand negotiated the deal with Lev Ginsburg of Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren & Richman, L.L.P. on behalf of Eberl. “Choose Connor” also screened at the Rome, Woodstock and Cinevegas film festivals. In the film, a Congressman (Weber) meets a teenaged student (Linz) who becomes involved in a web of political intrigue. [Eugene Hernandez]
