'Framing John Delorean' Screens at the 2019 Summer KCET Cinema Series

Following a screening of "Framing John Delorean," producer Tamir Ardon and directors Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce attended a Q&A hosted by Cinema Series host Pete Hammond. Power, money, controversy and scandal from the man who pursued the American Dream and dreamed of transforming the auto industry. The incredible story of John DeLorean, from his meteoric rise as a top executive at General Motors to his obsessive ambition to build the world's finest sports car to his fall on charges of cocaine trafficking. Interweaving archival footage and dramatic vignettes, the film stars Alec Baldwin as DeLorean.

Tamir Ardon is the creator of the number-one DeLorean website and proud owner of a show-winning DeLorean car. Ardon is an L.A.-based producer and is the Head of Documentaries at XYZ Films. He is known worldwide as a DeLorean historian and having befriended John DeLorean late in John’s life, Ardon was also in the running to produce an as-yet-unmade DeLorean feature narrative film – an important focus of this documentary. He was previously director of development at Zodiak USA and MME filmpool USA, where he produced and distributed unscripted television shows for both cable and network. He has a Master of Fine Arts Degree, Producer's Program from UCLA, and is a Chicago native who spends as much time in the Windy City as humanly possible.

Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce have made films on subjects as diverse as rock bands and nuclear power, the legal theft of priceless art collections and who really created Batman. Having also directed a narrative feature, the team brings a unique and critical perspective to the meta elements at work in creating film scenes that function as a compelling running commentary on the DeLorean story.
