Jonny Lewis

writer/director

The purpose of these films is to help people to think a bit more deeply about this thing we call war, which is the killing and maiming of our fellows, and the death and suffering of young people in uniform in the name of lofty goals, but which always involves money and power and greed. But rather than convey my message through the dark lens of gritty documentaries, I choose to use humor.

With 27 awards and 150+ festivals, I’m done making short films now. I’m forging ahead to writing all types of feature films, including one in Japanese to be filmed in Japan. I’m also writing the true life story of a friend of mine who was a soldier in Iraq. It’s not an antiwar film, just a true telling of his experiences. It is of necessity a dark comedy. See Sergeant Meat. My 7 feature scripts can be found at JonnyLewis.com.
