was directed that he formed a partnership with, James Eaves and Johannes Roberts
who also wrote the music they are going to produce five new movies. Their next
project will be a film called Alice, followed by the life of Salvador Dali, who
Uri knew. James Eaves and Johannes Roberts are indirect protégés
