Memories of My Father, the Film Producer

My Father Igo Kantor produced 10 films in his life.

In August 2012, I received a call from my father. We spoke about the Dodgers and the coming election and the Los Angeles heat wave when he casually said, “I’m going to Ghana tomorrow.”

“Uh, what?”

“I’m meeting with an investor for our movie. He owns a gold mine and wants to get in the film business.”




Loren Kantor is a passionate writer and woodcut artist with a love for movies, music and old Los Angeles.
