Jeff Feuerzeig tells JT Leroy’s Story

Feuerzeig just completed the feature length AUTHOR: The JT LeRoy Story for A&E Indiefilms, Ratpac and VICE.


AUTHOR goes deep inside the curious case of the onetime literary “It” boy sensation who was outed by New York Magazine and the NY Times in 2005 as Laura Albert, a 40 year old former punk rocker and mom from Brooklyn. The film premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. It was acquired by Amazon Films and released theatrically in 2017.
