Studio Canal have today announced the UK acquisition of Director-Producer’s Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow’s much anticipated documentary De Palma from A24.
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.
Following premieres at The Venice and New York Film Festivals, De Palma opens in the USA on June 10th with UK release announcements forthcoming. Check out the trailer and poster below:
