Director(s):Amy Scott


Academy Award–winning filmmaker Hal Ashby directed a string of irreverent classics that defined the ‘70s: Harold and Maude, The Last Detail, Shampoo, and Being There. But as a nonconformist working within the New Hollywood studio system, his success was overshadowed by the blockbuster directors of his generation. Amy Scott’s exuberant portrait gives the unsung maverick the close-up he deserves, using rare archival materials, personal letters and interviews to reveal a passionate, obsessive genius—one with a unique soul, an unprecedented insight into the human condition, and an unmatched capacity for good.

See Hal back-to-back with his timeless cult classic, Harold and Maude, on Sunday, January 20.

Co-presented with Toronto Film Society
