Gore Vidal: The United States Of Amnesia
18 Jul 2014 | Friday 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Cinema Ventures presents another great documentary in the ongoing series in partnership with BEMAC and Screen Queensland: GORE VIDAL The United States of Amnesia, winner of many International Audience Awards and Festival prizes, this seriously witty and scandalous doc will make you think twice about America, if you haven’t already!
No twentieth-century figure has had a more profound effect on the worlds of literature, film, politics, historical debate, and the culture wars than Gore Vidal. Anchored by intimate one-on-one interviews with the man himself, Nicholas Wrathall’s new documentary is a fascinating and wholly entertaining portrait of the last lion of the age of American liberalism.
Director Nic Wrathall will intro his film and conduct Q&A afterwards. How did an Aussie director make THE film about this renowned American iconoclast and novelist?
