Director Peter Sanders and editor Clark Harris talk about their documentary ALTINA, the story of a wealthy New Yorker who invented the Harlequin eyeglasses in the 1930s and created a unique brand of functional sculpture she called “chairacters.” Sanders’ previous film, THE DISAPPEARED (2008), was chosen by the government of Argentina to represent the country at a conference on Human Rights sponsored by the United Nations, and was later broadcast on The History Channel. ALTINA was released theatrically in September at the IFC theater in New York and at the Laemmle Music Hall theater in Los Angeles.
