NEW SEASON STARTS: DIRECTOR RETROSPECTIVE ~ HAL ASHBY

HAL

HAL (2018, 90 minutes)

Having screened in 2018 at the 45th Telluride Film Festival, we are pleased to announce an encore presentation of this masterful documentary about the great director Hal Ashby.  “In one nine-year span, Hal Ashby conceptualized, helped write, directed and edited the deepest filmography of the 1970s. His seven films, including HAROLD AND MAUDE, COMING HOME and BEING THERE, each demonstrate a soulfulness, emotional sophistication, social awareness and sense of humor. Amy Scott explores Ashby’s glorious explosion of creative expression, investigating his tragic youth, his indoctrination into cinema (he won an Oscar for editing IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT), his on-set egalitarianism (even a production assistant might have a good idea) and his remarkable strength of will, which allowed him to fight for control with studio heads and win … until he didn’t. Filled with fantastic clips and heartfelt interviews, this is an essential addition to our film history.” – Jason Silverman, Telluride Film Festival
