Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You
Arguably the most influential television creator of all time, Norman Lear brought primetime into step with the times. His legendary shows, including All in the Family, Maude and The Jeffersons, boldly shifted the national consciousness regarding race, class, and feminism. NORMAN LEAR: JUST ANOTHER VERSION OF YOU is the definitive chronicle of Mr. Lear’s life and work, but it is so much more than an arm’s-length, past-tense biopic; at 93, Mr. Lear is as vital and engaged as ever. Acclaimed documentarians Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing (Jesus Camp, Detropia) fashion a dynamic portrait that matches Mr. Lear’s spirit. Breaking down the fourth wall to create an evocative collage where past and present intermingle, they reveal a psychologically rich man whose extraordinary contributions emerge from both his personal story and a dialogue with the world.
