... I would like to read more about Zach and his work and perhaps have a chance to see one of his films one day ?
Many thanks from Kristina. :grouphug;

I know he had been working on a film called "Unconditional Love, the Documentary" because I gave a donation toward the production costs.


I am not sure what the current status is.  I've looked at their Facebook page but find no notice that the film has been either completed or aired.  If anyone has seen it or has any more current news about it, please let us know.  Thanks!

Many thanks for your assistance, MooseMom and Rerun, it is very much appreciated.
With your kind help I could "do" my research and found his name, his documentary films and also his favourite quotes:

1) A man's word is his most precious possession.

2) Living a life, not an apology.

Zach certainly was a remarkable person, an example to us all and he is very much missed.

R.I.P. Zach

Bach was no pioneer; his style was not influenced by any past or contemporary century.
  He was completion and fulfillment in itself, like a meteor which follows its own path.

Zach directed this one that I found online:
Closing the Achievement Gap (PBS, 2004)  https://youtu.be/5COxkCfjLLc
Here is a mini bio he wrote for IMDB:

Zach Richter worked for the late night ABC News program, Nightline, before forming the Corporation for Educational Radio and Television (CERT) in 1984.

Past documentaries produced and directed by Richter include the award-winning special, Beyond the Dream: Immigrants in America (NBC, 1988); Emmy nominated China at the Crossroads (ABC, 1989); Circle of the Spirit (NBC, 1990); Black American Conservatism: An Exploration of Ideas (PBS, 1992); the award-winning Liberating America's Schools (PBS, 1993); the award-winning three-part, three-hour series, The New Urban Renewal: Reclaiming Our Neighborhoods (PBS, 1997); Charter Schools That Work (PBS, 2000); the award-winning Closing the Achievement Gap (PBS, 2004); and the award-winning These Kids Mean Busines$ (PBS, 2007).

Richter has served on the boards of the International Radio and Television Society, the Tisch School of the Arts Alumni Group and the American Association of Kidney Patients, New York Chapter. Richter holds a BFA from the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University.

I heard from his sister today. She has been emptying out his apartment. It's been very hard, so many memories.
She said, "One good note is that all of his company's editing equipment is being donated to a great non profit here in Brooklyn, Brooklyn Academy for the Arts, which I think he would have liked."
She says she will let us know when his memorial will be.
