JFK Documentary 'Parkland Doctors' Seeks Crowdfunding
LOS ANGELES - Producers Bill Garnet and Jacque Lueth are seeking supporters for their crowdfunding site to help finance their proposed documentary, "The Parkland Doctors." The film is based on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963.
The site, https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-parkland-doctors-john-f-kennedy#/story, is seeking to raise $60,000 in the next 60 days for the proposed film.
The seven doctors in the movie describe how they tried to resuscitate Kennedy in the emergency room at Parkland Hospital in Dallas on the afternoon of Nov. 23, 1963. They also recount the story about how the president's body was forcibly removed from the hospital by order of the FBI and then go on to describe their efforts of trying to save the life of Lee Harvey Oswald just after the killing.
Among the pysicians involved in the film are Drs. Donald Seldin, Robert McClelland, Ronald Jones, Kenneth Salyer, Joe D. Goldstrich, Peter Loeb and Lawrence Klein.
"For the first time since 11/22/63, seven of the Parkland doctors come together," producers say on their website. "What happened inside the emergency room as told by the participants sheds new light on that day and the events that followed. They discuss the resussitation efforts, their fears, their reluctance to talk about their involvement and the after effects of the autopsy."
The producers continued: "We have already shot the film and are 80% finished with the edit. Your support will go towards post production, graphics, archival footage, music, sound and color correction. We're hoping to exceed our $50,000 goal to be able to make a run for an Oscar."
