Producer Evan Kleinman
Evan Kleinman is a four-time Emmy nominated producer and director. He has produced television programming for NBC, online media for New York Magazine and Broadway.com, music videos, and commercial work. Evan’s two biggest passions are to tell compelling and inspiring stories and exploring Jewish identity. Both of which are evident in his independent documentaries, “We are still here” about his family traveling to Poland to place a gravestone on the site where his grandfather buried his brother who died in the Holocaust, and “Punk Jews” which follows a community of artists expressing Judaism in unconventional ways.

Saul is the writer and director of "Jurotrip: A Jewish, Historical, and Artistic perspective on a trip through the Northwestern Mediterranean” and "The Stetson Pin." He is an advocate for what he calls "the future of Jewish cinema", which is to tell stories about the wide, varied aspects of history and culture that make Judaism what it is today. His films have been featured in various film festivals and have been shown at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s BAM Rose Cinema and the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York. He received his BFA in Film from the Pratt Institute with a minor in Film History and was the recipient of the Outstanding Merit Award in Media Arts & Film. He has directed, edited and done camerawork for a wide range of projects spanning commercial, short film, documentary, online media, interview, music video, award ceremonies, and television. Following the tradition of the French New Wave of the 1950's, Saul not only produces films but is also a critic. His reviews can be found at Chud.com and he is a regular guest host of the podcast Video Death Ray. You can visit his official website here and follow him on twitter @SMSudin.
