Kathryn Altman and Michael Murphy Introduce and Discuss Altman

November 1, 2014, 7:00 PM

Kathryn Altman, Robert Altman’s wife, and Michael Murphy, one of the perhaps the greatest of contemporary American directors’ favorite actors, return to Waterville (after lending their luminous presences to MIFF 2013) to introduce and discuss the fabulous new film about him, in which both — particularly Kathryn, who practically narrates! — are prominently featured. Ron Mann's new documentary Altman is an in-depth look at the life and times of filmmaker Robert Altman (M*A*S*H, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Nashville, The Player, Gosford Park, and many more.) While refusing to bow down to Hollywood's conventions, or its executives, Altman's unique style of filmmaking won him friends and enemies, earned him world-wide praise and occasionally scathing criticism, and proved that it IS possible to make truly independent films—and truly great American ones. With its use of rare interviews, representative film clips, archival images, and musings from his family and most recognizable collaborators, Mann’s Altman is a dynamic and heartfelt mediation on an artist whose expression, passion and appetite knew few bounds. Unrated, 95 Min.
