Norm Gershman has led a fascinating life as a former stockbroker on Wall Street to professional photographer with a book based on Muslims who Saved Jews in Albania during WWII. Choosing a birthday gift for him is daunting, since he has amazing taste and also treats himself to the things he loves in life.
When he was turning 70, his children decided to get him a life story movie as a gift. It also became a Tribute to him, and a walk down memory lane as his children, ex-wife, grandchildren, and close friends all had amazing stories from the heart to tell about him.
We filmed him and his sister walking through their old neighborhood in Bayonne, NJ and ringing the bell on their childhood home discovered that their upstairs neighbor was still living their after all those years. What a moment to capture on film!
Here is a short moment from the film.
