Brandon and Lance Kramer on “The First Step”

America may be deeply divided by political alignments, but CNN host and contributor, Emmy award winner and 3-time New York Times bestselling author Van Jones managed to pass a bi-partisan criminal justice reform that freed thousands of incarcerated felons for drug-related crimes and more, now the subject of a documentary called The First Step. HFPA's Jenny Cooney spoke with director Brandon Kramer and producer Lance Kramer about the film that follows Jones on his journey, has gone viral at 40+ festivals and got picked up for worldwide distribution.
