In Person

Robert Drew
Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin interviews Robert Drew about his new doc on John F. Kennedy, composed from Drew’s acclaimed John Kennedy films, which represent the genesis of the cinema verité movement in America. This new documentary brings to vivid life the Camelot years of the early sixties. We experience the Kennedy White House grappling with major issues, from the Cuban Missile Crisis to the desegregation of the University of Alabama, as well as the shock and sorrow of the assassination.

After the screening, Drew will discuss with Alec Baldwin why he went through his archives to create a new Kennedy film for the 21st century.
