Gregory Ruzzin believes that telling stories (and listening carefully to them) is how we learn about ourselves, about other people, and about the world around us. Having an idea for a story and wanting to share it is a deeply human impulse, and as both a filmmaker and professor at Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film and Television Ruzzin spends his time helping others share THEIR stories with the world. Helping his younger sister Alyssa – who lives with epilepsy and a developmental disability – tell her story in their documentary film "LOST CHILD?", inspired his current film project "St. Declan's and THE MAGIC CHAIR", a moving portrait of a school for children with special needs in Dublin, Ireland. The film will be completed in summer 2022.
