We were incredibly grateful to know Jonathan Demme, the filmmaker known widely for his Oscar-winning film, The Silence Of The Lambs. He graced the Rubin with his vibrant spirit during multiple occasions and most recently joined us for our Karma series in 2015. We fondly remember his openness to adventure and will miss him greatly.
