Ken Wolfgang: Portrait of an Independent Arizona Filmmaker

Feb 13, 2014

Ken Wolfgang was born in Toledo, Ohio in 1931. In 1958 he founded Kensharo Productions and in 1964 he moved to Sonoita, AZ to make filmmaking his full time profession. The travelogue films Wolfgang produced between 1958-1982 document a breadth of regions and their cultures ranging from Mexico, Thailand, Japan, India, Singapore, Austria, and the American desert southwest. With his films, Wolfgang strove to document the cultural perspective of his subjects without reinforcing the negative stereotypes of foreign cultures that were held by members of the American culture.
