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."
