Lights, Camera, Action! 

Stan Roden and Phyllis de Picciotto
Paul Wellman

The untold story is what drives the baba2films duo: “stories, usually character-driven, that aim for the heart,” said Stan Roden, a former Santa Barbara County district attorney. He got hooked on storytelling when he entered the film fest’s Green Shorts contest with a two-minute video on the ecological benefits of composting. Film lovers know Phyllis de Picciotto well — she founded the aforementioned S.B. International Film Festival. Together they teach Social Justice Documentary Filmmaking at Antioch College, and like a number of their film shorts, this week’s about the Franklin Service Center’s Alejandra Gutierrez can be found here.
