Two Emmy Nominations for VCCA's Ralph Arlyck
When the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences rolls out the red carpet at Lincoln Center on September 22, VCCA Fellow and documentary filmmaker Ralph Arlyck will be there: his film "Following Sean" has been nominated for two Emmy Awards for Best Documentary and Outstanding Achievement in Writing. In this 87-minute film, Ralph returns to the subject of his 1969 film "Sean"—his 4-year-old neighbor who lives the hippie lifestyle in a Haight-Ashbury crash pad. Thirty years later, Ralph's camera finishes the story about the now grown-up Sean and his family. Be sure to tune into the awards ceremony next month!
