STUDIOCANAL is pleased to present the official poster and trailer for DE PALMA, which is released in cinemas 23 September 2016.
Directed by Noah Baumbach (Mistress America, Frances Ha) and Jake Paltrow (Young Ones, The Good Night) the documentary explores De Palma’s life, work and approach as a filmmaker through fascinating discussions with Brian De Palma himself.
One of the most talented, influential, and iconoclastic filmmakers of all time, Brian De Palma’s career started in the 60s and has included such acclaimed and diverse films as Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, Scarface, The Untouchables, Carlito’s Way, and Mission: Impossible. In this lively, illuminating and unexpectedly moving documentary, directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow engage in a personal and candid discussion with De Palma, exploring not only his 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 the film industry through the eyes of someone who has truly seen it all.
DE PALMA will be released in UK cinemas on 23 September 2016
