Milestone Films, started by Amy Heller and Dennis Doros in 1990, has gained an international reputation for releasing classic cinema masterpieces, groundbreaking documentaries and independent features.

Doc was a friend of Shirley’s, and their stories resonate, as politically-oriented artists working in the face of personal demons. To learn more about Milestone Films click here
