Lara was a 2008 President’s Volunteer Service Award winner, which was presented by recording artist Michael W. Smith on behalf of President George W. Bush for her charity work. In her free time, she can be found hanging out with her young son and daughter, snowboarding, shopping at vintage and thrift stores, chanting at yoga class, and attending lots of concerts and films. Her passion for preservation and history led her to Old Town Music Hall in El Segundo, a historic theatre that shows classic films on the big screen every weekend, and she now serves on their advisory board. The theatre was also featured in her first book, From the Corner of Hollywood and diVine: Your Guide to 30 Old Hollywood-Inspired Spots in Southern California.

In addition to his work as a filmmaker, James established the non-profit Shoah Foundation with Steven Spielberg for recording and preserving more than 50,000 ‘visual histories’ of Holocaust survivors.
James’s passion for film began when at twelve-years-old he was taken by his parents to Old Town Music Hall, a 1921 vintage movie theater in El Segundo, CA that shows classic films from the silent period through the 1940s. His family continued to visit the theater regularly, and today James is actively involved in helping keep the non-profit theater alive for future generations.
Moll serves as chair of the Directors Guild of America Documentary Awards, and also serves on the Executive Committee of the Documentary Branch of the Motion Picture Academy.
