Michael Marantz Directs Robin Hood Foundation's "We All Stumble"
Michael Marantz, who earned a slot in SHOOT’s 2015 New Directors Showcase, directed, served as a writer and created the music for this film for the Robin Hood Foundation via production company Already Alive.
Robin Hood Foundation, which partners with 200-plus organizations, helps some 400,000 New Yorkers a year living in poverty, affording opportunities to people who would otherwise normally fall through the cracks. Titled We All Stumble, this short depicts the plight of the impoverished, ultimately offering a ray of hope as we see how a helping hand can make a world of difference. The film makes a stirring case for contributing to Robin Hood; 100% of donations go toward the partner organizations that are on the front lines of the fight against poverty in NYC.
