New Perspectives Film Series: Joan Rivers
Monday, January 31, 2011
The critically acclaimed documentary, Joan Rivers –A Piece of Work, created to celebrate her 75th birthday, will be shown at the Wilton Library on Saturday evening. The film exposes the private dramas of the irreverent, legendary comedian and pop icon as she fights tooth and nail to remain the queen of comedy. Filmed as a cinema verité documentary, it offers a rare glimpse of her comedic process and the toxic mixture of self-doubt and anger that often fuels it.
Documentary filmmaker, Megan Smith-Harris hosts the event and will facilitate a lively Q&A with special guest Julia Harrison, an aspiring stand up comedienne, following the screening.
Saturday, February 5 from 7:30 - 9:30 PM
