A conversation about stories that inspire with Berkeley filmmaker Morgan Schmidt-Feng
Morgan Schmidt-Feng grew up in Berkeley and spent time bonding with his filmmaker father. In fact, Schmidt-Feng played a fictionalized version of himself as a teen in his dad’s film "Morgan’s Cake," which was screened at Sundance.
Those years around the camera sparked an interest in Schmidt-Feng to become a documentary filmmaker. His talent has taken him to LucasFilm and the Olympics.
In this interview, he tells us about that and his latest film, "Anton: Circling Home." It's about 80-year-old artist Anton van Dalen and his love for pigeons.
