Kane-Lewis Productions To Interview Moyers
The Weekly Packet|2/27/2020
SEDGWICK—Kane-Lewis Productions of Sedgwick recently announced that Bill Moyers, American journalist and political commentator, will be interviewed February 25 for their new documentary Truth Tellers. The film is expected to be released later this year.

This 19th film in the Maine Masters series on accomplished Maine artists, “Truth Tellers” will profile Robert Shetterly of Brooksville, the artist behind a portrait collection called “Americans Who Tell the Truth.” Shetterly began the project after 9/11 when he became disillusioned by what he deemed were false justifications for invading Iraq. His goal at the time was to paint portraits of 50 great American truth-tellers. The first was Walt Whitman, with a passage from Leaves of Grass inscribed in the dark background. Today, nearly two decades later, Shetterly has painted 250 portraits. In Shetterly’s view, more important than our right to free speech is our right to the truth, according to a news release from Kane-Lewis Productions.
