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 of the series features Israeli filmmaker Avi Belkin, director of this year’s archive-heavy Mike Wallace is Here, which profiles the iconic 60 Minutes correspondent via great access to the CBS vaults. The doc is distributed theatrically by Magnolia Pictures and is slated to air on Hulu in the near future.

Belkin is also the director of the Sundance TV docuseries, No One Saw a Thing. The six-part project examines the cold case of the vigilante murder of Ken Rex McElroy, a “town bully” accused of terrorizing the Missouri town of Skidmore with multiple crimes over the span of decades, and gunned down while in his truck, with scores of townspeople witnessing the act but no one discussing it with authorities.

Here, the director discusses coming to the U.S. from Israel and the processes behind making the projects.
