Trailer Screening - An Open Door: A Jewish Rescue in the Philippines

Noel Izon is an independent filmmaker based in Maryland. Over the past four decades, he has won many national awards for his work, which includes some 100 nationally televised programs produced mainly for PBS and for National Geographic Television. An Open Door: Jewish Rescue in the Philippines is the third in his trilogy of forgotten World War II stories.

Most recently, his company, ICT, coordinated the visual program for Vice-President Dick Cheney’s inaugural salute to American veterans and created For Our Tomorrows—a video tribute to veterans for the event. Among his many documentary films are Everglades, In the Spirit of Stradivarius, Navaho Sandpainting, Singapore Street Opera, and Cameras on Move—all for National Geographic Television. He also was the producer of Pearls, the first PBS series on Asians in America. He has done numerous films and videos for the U.S. government, including several for the White House, and recently completed a video to teach Korean and other Asian immigrants about the U.S. justice system.
