Preview Screening: Corman’s World: Exploits Of A Hollywood Rebel, and A Live Video Conversation With Roger Corman
Dir. Alex Stapleton. 2011, 95 mins. With Roger Corman, Peter Bogdanovich, Joe Dante, Jonathan Demme, Peter Fonda, Ron Howard, Jack Nicholson, John Sayles, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino. With his high-octane, low-budget, no-holds-barred approach to filmmaking, Roger Corman has been the most prolific producer-director-writer in American film in the past 60 years. He has helped launch the careers of such directors as Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard, Jonathan Demme, and Peter Bogdanovich, while turning out such movies as Monster From the Ocean Floor, Night Call Nurses, and Rock ‘n Roll High School. This entertaining star-studded features a delightfully candid interview with Jack Nicholson. This preview screening will be followed by a live video conversation with Roger Corman. (Part of the series After Hours)
