After 50 years as an American diplomat, Richard Holbrooke is most famous for helping Bill Clinton end the bloody Bosnian War. Now his son has come to know his father better in death than he did in life by making a documentary that debuts November 2 on HBO.
Richard Holbrook wrote his first autobiography at the age of 14. At the age of 69, he was making tapes for a follow-up when he suddenly died in the midst of an extraordinary career. He was serving as President Obama's Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan.
David Holbrooke is the son of Richard Holbrooke and the festival director of Telluride Mountainfilm. He's also the director of The Diplomat.
