Hi Reddit, I’m Ezra Edelman and I am a documentary filmmaker. AMA!
I am doing this AMA on behalf of ESPN Films’ “O.J.: Made in America” which is airing over ESPN this week.
I have produced and directed three films for HBO, including Magic and Bird: A Courtship of Rivals, Brooklyn Dodgers: The Ghosts of Flatbush and The Curious Case of Curt Flood. I also co-produced the documentary Cutie and The Boxer.
I’ve done other projects for ESPN Films including directing the 30 for 30 documentary Requiem for the Big East and I also directed The Opposition, which aired as part of the 30 for 30 Soccer Stories series.
I’m a native of Washington D.C. and currently live in Brooklyn.
I warn you that I may not have all the answers as to what was or may currently be happening inside the mind of O.J. Simpson, but I’m happy to answer any and all questions about the making of this documentary to the best of my ability.
Edit: Hey Reddit, thank you so much for all the questions! They were all very thoughtful and insightful, I very much hope that you guys continue enjoying the documentary.
