Directors Statement Celebrating the art of filmmaking and storytelling with others who joy in this art form is always a pleasure!  So very much looking forward to joining in The Richard Harris Film Festival activities, and making new friends as well as cheering on those who have fallen in love with this medium as I have.

The Brothers Warner is an intimate portrait and epic saga of the four film pioneers who founded and ran Warner Bros. for over 50 years. This is the inside story of the four brothers who built an empire on a dream and revolutionized Hollywood creating the first major studio with a social conscience honourable Harry Warner; honest Abe; visionary Sam; and capricious Jack.

This close-knit band of brothers was the first to use motion pictures to “educate, entertain, and enlighten”.  Their stories were often ripped from news headlines. It was Harry’s personal belief that, “Those who make a nation’s entertainment have obligations above and beyond their primary commercial objective, which is the box office.”

It’s written, directed and in the voice of Cass Warner Sperling, Harry Warner’s granddaughter, and produced by Warner Sisters Productions.  Their epic story includes never before seen photos and footage, and unfolds through the eyes of family members and those who personally knew them, and experienced the Golden Years of Hollywood.  Some of those interviewed are:  Dennis Hooper, Debbie Reynolds, Angie Dickinson, and Samuel Goldwyn Jr.
