The Kid Stays in the Picture
Legendary film producer Robert Evans narrates the story of his life.
Nanette Burstein, Brett Morgen
USA 2002. 90min
‘There are three sides to every story: my side, your side, and the truth. And no one is lying.’ The opening quote of this comprehensive portrait of the operatic life of Robert Evans, the Hollywood studio exec with the Midas touch, tells us that all may not be what it seems. Filmmakers Morgen and Burstein weave a rich tapestry of archive footage, audio and stills, employing for the first time the ‘2.5D’ visual effect, an innovation which altered the grammar of cinema.
The screening on Tuesday 6 September will be introduced by Brett Morgen.
