June 24 - 30, 2016
SIFF Cinema Uptown | Ends Thurs June 30
Directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow present a lively, illuminating and unexpectedly moving look at one of the most talented, influential, and iconoclastic filmmakers of all time, Brian De Palma.
Plus: Special screenings of classic De Palma films June 24–26 at the SIFF Film Center.
Centered by a personal and candid discussion, De Palma not only explores the director's life and work, but also his singular approach to the craft of filmmaking and 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. In the end, what emerges is a funny, honest, and incisive portrait of a truly one-of-a-kind artist, and an exhilarating behind-the-scenes look at the last 50 years of film history through the eyes of someone who has truly seen it all.
