DECONSTRUCTING HARRY

JEAN DOUMANIAN (Producer) has a long and successful career in film, theater, and television. Her most recent project is the new film by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and critically acclaimed filmmaker David Mamet entitled "The Spanish Prisoner," which appeared both at the Toronto Film Festival and the Deauville Film Festival. "Deconstructing Harry," which opened the Venice Film Festival, was not the only film at the festival that Ms. Doumanian produced. Also at Venice was another of Ms. Doumanian's productions, a documentary by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple, called "Wild Man Blues."

Ms. Doumanian was the Executive Producer of several of Allen's previous films, including "Everyone Says I Love You" (which Roger Ebert hailed as Allen's best film), "Mighty Aphrodite" (which received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress), and "Bullets Over Broadway" (which received seven Academy Award nominations and won for Best Supporting Actress).

Along with "The Spanish Prisoner" and two films which appeared at the Venice Film Festival, Ms. Doumanian's additional productions include Woody Allen's new fall project; a film written and directed by two young filmmakers, Sean Smith and Anthony Stark, entitled "Elements;" and "Dinah Was," a play about Dinah Washington, written by Oliver Goldstick and directed by David Petrarca. Two new films are in pre-production, including a film written for the screen and directed by playwright Tom Donaghy called "The Story of a Bad Boy" and "Cherry Pink," a film written by Marshall Karp to be shot in the spring.

Ms. Doumanian's career in various mediums is impressive. She produced Sven Nykvist's "The Ox," an Academy Award-nominated film which starred Liv Ullman and Max Von Sydow, as well as a number of projects outside of the film arena which have garnered a great deal of praise. The Off-Broadway play "Death Defying Acts," which Ms. Doumanian produced, broke box office records, and Woody Allen's first film for television, "Don't Drink the Water," was executive produced by Ms. Doumanian. As producer of "Saturday Night Live," she discovered Eddie Murphy, among others. Ms. Doumanian also produced the classic TV special "Bob and Ray, Jane, and Gilda," and received an Emmy for "The Dick Cavett Show."
