SDIFF: Interview with Rick Korn
Director Rick Korn took some time to sit down with the MTR Network and discuss his latest documentary Harry Chapin: When in Doubt Do Something. Singer/songwriter and philanthropist Harry Chapin's best known in music circles for his number one single Cat's in the Cradle. But, Harry Chapin, the man, threw his entire self - and his career - in to being an citizen activist. He wanted to end poverty and hunger in the world; he was willing to dedicate his platform, time and energy wholly to the cause.

Interview with Director Rick Korn about his latest documentary Harry Chapin: When In Doubt Do Something currently making the rounds of the film festival circ...
Rick Korn is a film/TV producer, writer, and director who works with different non-profit organizations - including WHYHunger, co-founded by Harry Chapin, - producing fundraising concerts. He's last documentary focused on the rescue and recovery 9/11 workers. During its production, Korn interviewed Chapin's former partner, Bill Ayres. His casual query of Ayers wondering why no one's ever made a documentary about Harry elicited the response, "Why don't you do it?"
Korn discusses bringing this story to life, his person connection to Harry Chapin and what he how he hopes learning more about Chapin and the activism Chapin dedicated his life to will motivate others to stop doubting, and do something.
