Our HAPPY FATHER'S DAY movie now has a great Director and Production Manager

I am happy - thrilled actually - to announce that Keran Rees (he's the bald guy on the right) and Greg Williams are officially our Director and Production Manager respectively.

Keran is an amazing director who has been passionate about HAPPY FATHER'S DAY since Greg first told him about our project. And Greg? Well,  we all know that Greg has been one of the main creative forces driving HAPPY FATHER'S DAY since early last year.

The lonesome death of my friend Jacobo Luis Fuchs

On this day - three years ago - my friend Mr. Fuchs was rendered unconscious with drugs then denied food and liquids. Seven days later he died of starvation in a nursing home room - alone - surrounded only by the whirl of machines, cold fluorescent light, and impending death.

"You who philosophize disgrace,
And criticize all fears.
Bury the rag most deep in your face
Now is the time for your tears."

Please sign my PETITION, which asks Canada's Attorney General to reopen last year's Coroner's Investigation into the killing of Mr. Fuchs.

I thank you, and Mr. Fuchs's family - Carlos Fox, Joanne Stewart, Michelle Ramsay, Dr. J.Gilles Boulais thank you as well.

Happy Father's Day James C. Russell and all the fathers of the world


"Never dreamed that he would be gone from me.
If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
I’d play a song that would never, ever end
‘Cause I’d love, love, love
To dance with my father again"

.... "Dance with my father"... lyrics by Luther Vandross
