ABOUT GARY LEVA
Filmmaker and film historian Gary Leva has distinguished himself as the creative force behind scores of documentaries, many of them focused on the cinematic arts. His films have premiered at film festivals from Austin to Telluride to Monte Carlo and received a New York Film Society screening at Manhattan's Guggenheim Museum. His collections of documentaries on filmmakers George Lucas, Alfred Hitchcock, Clint Eastwood and Stanley Kubrick are often regarded as the top anthology on each of these master's works.
Having earned a distinguished reputation in his field, Leva continues to produce award-winning documentaries on a variety of topics. His film Old South, New South received international acclaim for its frank look at how life in the South has changed – and how it hasn’t – since the Civil War. Other documentaries cover such diverse topics as the role of investigative journalists in an Internet-savvy world, and the ways in which the achievements of Alexander the Great are reflected in our modern lives. Leva is an adjunct professor at the USC School of Cinematic Arts and Pepperdine University.
