Rothman (Nader Sadre | USA | 20 min.)
This documentary tells the story of defense attorney Frank Rothman. Born on the lower east side in the early 1960s, Frank grew up under the influence of a criminally sociopathic father who exposed him to a world of loan sharks, con men, and other assorted low-lifes. Frank became a defense attorney with the hope that he might help men like his dad beat the system. Over time Frank would shed his dad's influence and become a successful criminal lawyer in the New York City justice system, but only after putting his legal career into jeopardy.
First-time director, based in New York.
