About Wittgenstein Abecedarian

After producing over three hundred media works on education and teaching - films, radio programs, multimedia software, web sites, e-books, etc., I  left New York to go on the road as an itinerant film-maker. I moved every month or so, shooting a different film in each country I visited.


A year and a half ago, I visited the graveyard where Ludwig Wittgenstein, a philosopher I had studied in college, is buried. I went back to Cambridge a week later, and began to shoot a film there. At the time, I didn't know that I would spend the next 18 months researching, shooting and editing the film, and I didn't even know if it would be about Wittgenstein, his philosophy, the graveyard itself, the stone carver whose workshop is just steps from the grave, or the people from all over the world who make a pilgrimage to Wittgenstein's grave.


It's turned out to be about all of these things.
