His focus is on creating films that examine the cultural and interior lives of unfamiliar and overlooked populations.His short film, ‘SHACHARIT – A MORNING PRAYER’, won multiple festival awards, including Best Student Film at the American Anthropological Association’s 2012 Film Festival. It was recently reviewed inAmerican Anthropologist and is screening in Spring, 2014 at the Ethnografilm Festival in Paris. Recently, he was Archival Researcher for Marshall Curry’s Academy Award-nominated documentary ‘IF A TREE FALLS’. Also a screenwriter, Loring wrote eight Movies-of-the-Week for NBC, CBS and Lifetime, including ‘THE OTHER MOTHER’ with Frances Fisher and ‘NO ONE WOULD TELL’ with Fred Savage. His new feature documentary, ‘THE AGE OF LOVE‘, which premieres in April, 2014, follows a first-of-its-kind Speed Dating event for 70- to 90-year-olds. Loring explores both the humor and poignance as thirty seniors take stock of aging bodies and still-hopeful hearts and confront the reality of seeking new relationships at the far reaches of life.
