Hot Docs 16 – DE PALMA

Screenings – Monday, May 2nd @ 6:15pm
Tuesday, May 3rd @ 10am, Friday, May 6th @ 9:30pm

One of the most talented, influential and iconoclastic filmmakers of all time, Brian De Palma started his career in the 1960s. It has included such acclaimed and diverse films as Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, Scarface, The Untouchables, Carlito’s Way and Mission: Impossible. In this lively and unexpectedly moving documentary, directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow engage in a personal and candid discussion with De Palma, exploring not only his life and work but also his singular approach to the craft of filmmaking. Touching on his remarkable experiences navigating the film business, from his early days as the bad boy of New Hollywood to his more recent years as a respected veteran of the field, what emerges is a funny and incisive portrait of a truly one-of-a-kind artist. It’s an exhilarating look at the last 50 years of film through the eyes of someone who’s truly seen it all. – Shane Smith
