SueSue Applegate aka Christy will be hosting this event and below is her announcement of this opportunity for us to ask Ms. Dean questions about Lamarr's remarkable legacy:
Director Alexandra Dean visits The Silver Screen Oasis this weekend on Saturday and Sunday, December 2 and 3. Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story has screened in Dallas, Toronto, San Francisco, New York, and several other venues in the United States.
Alexandra Dean is an Emmy award-winning documentary and news producer. She spent five years producing for the investigative news-magazine show NOW on PBS, where she covered the housing crisis, the student loan crisis, human rights abuses and environmental issues.
Following PBS she became a series and documentary producer at Bloomberg television. She co-created the long running Bloomberg series Innovators. Her Bloomberg documentary, The Player, an investigation of the gambling industry, received a New York Press Club Award and was described as a “breakout” by the channel and received 4 times Bloomberg’s usual viewership.
In 2014 she founded Reframed Pictures in partnership with filmmaker Adam Haggiag and the actress Susan Sarandon. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard University, and received her Masters in Journalism at the Columbia Journalism School.
First stop for Director Alexandra Dean and adorable husband Chris, who live in New York City, was a spicy BBQ feast with Publicist Kelly Kitchens, husband Mark Wickersham, and Sue Sue at Pappas’ restaurant near the Studio Movie Grill prior to the screening of Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story at the Dallas VideoFest… Chris works for the BBC and one of his pet projects is the Brit Box, and the couple have two children.
