2007 Garrett Scott Grant

Garrett Scott Documentary Development Grant

The 2007 Garrett Scott Development Grant is awarded to Robin Hessman, director of Russia’s Pepsi Generation and Lee Lynch, director of The Last Buffalo Hunt. The program will feature 10-minute excerpts of the grant recipients’ work and Cul De Sac: A Suburban War Story. Garrett Scott’s first film examines the case of a methamphetamine addict who stole a tank from an armory and went on a rampage through the San Diego suburbs. When the local armaments factory shut down, many people lost jobs, opportunities, and even hope. With incredible sensitivity, Scott seeks to understand the motivations of a troubled man and the culture that inspired his dramatic protest. An incisive and nuanced portrait of the invisible casualties in a war economy.  PB
