Milton Ginsberg

Milton Ginsberg, ACE, has edited three Oscar winning documentaries.  Another film he edited, "Catwalk," premiered at Cannes, and another, "Listen Up," at the New York Film Festival.  He has edited several dramatic flims, among them, "Fidel," a four hour dramatization of Castro's life, and Elmore Leonard's "Pronto," with Peter Falk.

He has also written and directed several feature films, most notably "Coming Apart,"  which featured Rip Torn as a psychiatrist using a hidden camera to record his own disintegration.  The entire film was shot in a single room from a single camera angle.  The flim is in the permanent collection of the Musuem of Modern Art.
