Video Interview with "Parkland" Director Peter Landesman and Actors Paul Giamatti and Jacki Weaver

"Parkland" takes a unique behind the scenes view of one of history’s most examined events, the assassination of JFK on November 22, 1963, telling the story not only of the hospital staff at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas who attended to the President, but the many others impacted that day including Abraham Zapruder the unwitting cameraman who captured the event, and the family of assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald.

In this video story, film journalist Katherine Tulich interviews director and screenwriter Peter Landesman about the casting and making of the movie, as well as Paul Giamatti who plays Abraham Zapruder, and Australia actress Jacki Weaver who plays Marguerite Oswald, mother of Lee Harvey Oswald.
