REQUEST A GOOD TALK WITH LENNY FEINBERG
Lenny Feinberg began his documentary career by producing the acclaimed documentary THE ART OF THE STEAL which premiered at Toronto International Film Festival, and then went on to play at the New York Film Festival, Palm Springs and others ultimately being acquired by IFC Films. THE ART OF THE STEAL tells the story of Dr. Albert Barnes and the controversy surrounding his multi-billion dollar art collection, which ultimately ended up in Philadelphia. Feinberg’s next film was BLACK AND WHITE AND DEAD ALL OVER directed by Chris Foster which follows investigative reporters from Philadelphia newspapers as their jobs hang in the balance. It played on WNET in NYC and premiered at the Newseum in Washington D.C. For his directorial debut, FATHER’S KINGDOM, which has screened at DocNYC, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, San Francisco Black Film Festival, Charlotte Black Film Festival, among many others. Lenny Feinberg was able to gain unprecedented access to the reclusive last remaining followers of the little known American civil rights pioneer Father Divine who is considered the link between Marcus Garvey and Martin Luther King. Father Divine at one time had over a million followers throughout the world but has been disregarded because he claimed that he was God incarnate. Lenny discovered and initiated each of these films through his unique access and perspective on Pennsylvania stories.
