Ho answers bell for LMU

'Rwanda' producer gets teaching gig

As part of its ongoing push to join the front rank of film schools, Loyola Marymount U.’s School of Film & Television has added “Hotel Rwanda” producer A. Kitman Ho to its Monday-night screenings.

Ho, whose credits include many films by Oliver Stone as well as Michael Mann’s “Ali,” will present “Hotel Rwanda” and then do a Q&A with students and faculty Jan. 24.

The screening series, which is not open to the public, has included William Friedkin presenting “Citizen Kane,” Alexander Payne with “Sideways” and Frank Darabont with “The Shawshank Redemption.”

Since taking over as dean of LMU’s School of Film &Television, veteran producer Teri Schwartz (“Beaches,” “Sister Act”) has moved aggressively to bring major industry players into the school as teachers and guest artists, with an eye toward building LMU into a rival of USC, UCLA and NYU film schools.

LMU, said Schwartz, wants to turn out grads who are not only technically proficient but are trained storytellers as well.

“My hope is to create the kind of student I would have liked to have sent to me when I was a producer — students who are very prepared and know how to navigate the fluid waters of the business with grace and skill,” Schwartz said.

Guest faculty for the current academic year include actor and acting teacher Barry Primus and special effects pioneer Bill Kovacs.
