“I had always wanted to make films that were for social justice, but it was when I began to study Aesthetic Realism with Eli Siegel that I learned what could really make for change in the world! I learned that all art, in its purpose and technique, is ethical. Art has in it the way of seeing we need in our everyday lives. Mr. Siegel defined ethics as ‘the art of enjoying justice’!”—Ken Kimmelman
