THE LINE KING: THE AL HIRSCHFELD STORY
Saturday, December 29
Q&A with Director Susan Dryfoos and Louise Hirschfeld Cullman, moderated by Bruce Goldstein
(1996, Susan Warms Dryfoos) 90-something Al Hirschfeld (he died in 2003 at age 99) talks about his life and work: his childhood in St. Louis, a short-lived sculpting career, a Paris sojourn, and his 70 years as the “Line King” of Broadway. Oscar-nominated for 1996 Best Documentary Feature. Following the screening, director Dryfoos and Al’s wife Louise Hirschfeld Cullman will be interviewed by Bruce Goldstein, with audience Q&A. 35mm. Approx. 86 min.
“The warm, witty and sensitive documentary he deserves… some of the freshest archival footage, including Hirschfeld home movies and travelogues, you could ever see.”
