The director Cherry Arnold was on hand after the screening of Buddy for a quick Question and Answer session.  

When a guy in the audience asked her opinion about Buddy, she said she could only answer, "I've learned a lot about politics..." When probed further she continued to dodge the question.

"He was always aware when I was shooting, constantly telling me to turn the camera off when he was smoking, which he did a lot," said Cherry.

She filmed for 3 years in total, and even with the help of friends and family drained her life savings. She also obtained a LEF grant and three other RI grants.

"He first of all loves the media. Second, he's very concerned about his legacy."
