The Chalet Mauriac, imploding with creative energy.

I’m so lucky to be spending three weeks at the Chalet Mauriac, tucked in a pine forest in the South of France. I’m here together with other selected screenwriters and of course: yes we’re cooking dinner at night and drinking wine like French folks do. But during the day, I’m hard at work on my script for my feature-length documentary project, and prepping the preliminary shoot for it, which will take me to Ohio, Georgia and Florida.
