Stephen Z. Berkley, Writer/Director/Producer
Although Stephen has worked in multiple capacities inside the entertainment/media industry for over 30 years, Life With Ghosts is his first fully self-produced feature film. The story idea came with the death of Stephen’s father, when shortly afterwards, his mother began reporting interactions with whom she believed to be Dad's ghost — a real-life Mrs. Muir situation. Which naturally begged the question: Are ghosts a real phenomenon or are they merely symptomatic of profound grief? Life With Ghosts is the culmination of a seven-year investigation into the nature of love, loss and ghosts and features three survivors' quests for answers.
