Q&A with Ami Horowitz
Ami Horowitz was born in Los Angeles and attended the University of Southern California. He worked as an investment banker in New York City. This was his first film.
Ami Horowitz talked about his film, U.N. Me, a critical portrayal of the role the United Nation plays in global politics and peacekeeping. He uses the term “docutainment” for his movie, crediting liberal filmmaker Michael Moore with motivating him, but calls his own political perspective “right of center.” He argues that the U.N. has failed to serve the world in the manner for which it was chartered in 1945, citing examples of murder and rape by U.N. troops and its lack of decisive action to stop the genocide in Rwanda and ethnic cleansing in Sudan. He said he was outraged by the selection of Iranian President Ahmadinijad as the keynote speaker at the U.N.'s human rights conference. He described gaining access to the U.N. for filming and traveling the world for the production. Video clips of the film were shown.
