Journey To Mecca - Behind The Scenes

  • “And so I was hooked…” Jake Eberts, Executive producer

    "As you get older in the movie business and you stand back a bit," says Jake Eberts, whose films, which include Gandhi, Dances with Wolves and A River Runs through it, have won 27 Academy Awards® and 65 Oscar® nominations, "you feel a compulsion to leave a mark and do something that will be important. It is not all about commerce, it is not all about making money, it is not all about movie stars, it is much more about having an impact. And so, when they had this idea that was impactful, it was important, it is something that the world has to know more about. And so I was hooked."
