UNO to Host Discussion Focused on Discovery Channel Documentary

Omaha - John Blizek, editor and director, will discuss the production of the Discovery Channel documentary “The Hunt for The Lost Symbol” at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) on Thursday, Nov. 19. The documentary will be shown after Blizek’s presentation.

The special evening – which is free and open to the campus community and public -- will begin at 6:30 p.m. in 306 Arts and Sciences Hall. “The Hunt for The Lost Symbol” explores how much of Dan Brown’s new novel, The Lost Symbol, is truth and how much is fiction. Blizek plans to speak about his role in the production and the overall process that goes into the creation of a documentary. He will also take questions from the audience.

Blizek was the supervising editor of “The Hunt for The Lost Symbol”. He also has served as the editor for a variety movies, pilots, and series like “City on Fire,” Extreme Horseman, “Ancestor Eyes,” “Murder.Com,” “Planet Raptor,” “Ice Spiders,” “Long Lost Sons,” “Silk Stalkings,” “Invisible Man,” “Pensacola: Wings of Gold,” “Push,” “Renegade,” “First & Ten,” and “The Investigators.”

The event is sponsored by Religious Studies at UNO and the Journal of Religion & Film.
