While armies of publicists basked or stewed in the glory or frustration of the results of the Oscars this weekend, one PR guy enjoyed praise for actually making a film. Agency head-turned-filmmaker Dan Klores won the documentary category at the Independent Spirit Awards for “Crazy Love,” the story of the insanely volatile relationship of Burt & Linda Pugash.

For you sports and history buffs, keep an eye out this Spring for “Black Magic,” Klores’s next documentary about civil rights era basketball.
