Mentors - Teaser Trailer

From Fugitive director, Andrew Davis comes Mentors – Tony & Santi. An intimate portrayal of two renowned photographers and their longtime personal and professional relationships. From Tony’s time as a combat photographer under General Patton in the 83rdInfantry Division during WWII capturing some of the most touching images of the war to Santi’s 1957 Goodyear sponsored jeep expedition across the globe. The film shares their life’s journey not only as friends but also legendary photographers. Some of Tony’s subjects include Enzo Ferrari, Pablo Picasso, JFK, and Sophia Loren amongst hundreds of others of Look and Life magazines while Santi photographed five US presidents, Federico Fellini, Mohammed Ali, Louis Armstrong, Andy Warhol, and Sophia Loren, as well as covers for over 50 magazines and newspapers including the New York Times, Time, Newsweek and Forbes. Mentors reminds us all of the importance of family, friends, and love.
