Jeremiah Zagar on "Starved For Attention"

It’s been awhile since I sat down to chat with director Jeremiah Zagar, one half of Brooklyn-based Herzliya Films, which he runs with his producer Jeremy Yaches, so I was pretty excited to hear about their latest venture, “Starved For Attention.” A short film series created at the behest of Doctors Without Borders and VII Photo designed to highlight childhood malnutrition around the world “Starved For Attention” also seems to be the rarest of public service announcements, doubling as works of cinematic art. I spoke briefly with Zagar as he was preparing for the release of the eighth doc in the series, dealing with the food crisis in Somalia and Northern Kenya.
