“…this multi-tentacled story using a daunting variety of footage, news footage and archival film mixed with interviews…shows the end-result of single-minded black-and-white thinking, especially when it comes to children. “
Filmwax’s Adam Schartoff spoke with Jonathan Goodman Levitt “to get more of an idea about why he feels so strongly about engaging audiences in a political dialogue during the heat of this political season.”
“Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the 2012 Republican and Democratic National Conventions…” The Washington Post talks with Nick Troiano, participant in the new film Follow the Leader that’s premiering in Charlotte during the DNC Convention.
“Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the 2012 Republican and Democratic National Conventions…” The Washington Post talks with Jonathan Goodman Levitt, the filmmaker behind the new film Follow the Leader that’s premiering in Charlotte during the DNC Convention.
“Troiano was recently featured in a film documentary called Follow the Leader, which tells the story of three conservative teenagers going through high school in America after 9/11, and is premiering at the RNC.”
“I started to question what I was doing, what my motives were. They were not public service, but to advance my own career and my own goals. I came to the conclusion that I can’t do this for the rest of my life,” said D.J. Beauregard (one of three main participants in Follow the Leader)

“Jonathan Goodman Levitt’s gentle film follows a year in the life of Dr. Allan Levi, a university professor who, when filming started, had just been suspended from work because of his manic depression…Leavened by humour, it is still a sobering demonstration of the everyday exasperations of living with mental illness.”
“The intimate documentary, to be broadcast on BBC tonight, starts by showing an engaging, high-spirited man and his loyal wife struggling with his suddenly jobless state and diagnosis. Without giving away too much, the film illustrates how fragile even the most apparently sturdy relationships can be when someone is diagnosed with a mental illness. With the rate of diagnosis increasing, this raises important issues.”
“Living with manic depression is one of the hardest thing to do, both for the person suffering from the illness and for their families. This important documentary is…almost too harrowing to watch and it is to the programme’s credit that it doesn’t shy away from tackling just how difficult…”
