Realscreen is partnering with filmmaker and executive producer Chuck Braverman and his Westdoc Online video series, to bring his interviews with acclaimed documentarians and non-fiction content industry figures to its readership.

The latest episode features director Matt Tyrnauer, who moved from a journalism career, writing for Spy and Vanity Fair, to documentary filmmaking with his debut feature Valentino: The Last Emperor (2009), and his latest film, Where’s My Roy Cohn?, distributed by Sony Pictures Classics.

In the film, Tyrnauer charts the life and notoriety of Cohn, from his work as chief counsel for Senator Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s to his emergence as a mentor for the 45th president of the United States, and many points between. In his interview with Chuck Braverman, Tyrnauer discusses his transition from journalist to filmmaker, how the Cohn project emerged from the research for another film (2018′s Studio 54), the challenges involved in funding the project, and much more.
