Irwin Winkler - A Life in Movies: Stories from 50 Years in Hollywood
From being the true believer who banked on a longshot named Rocky (producing the entire saga, up to and including Creed II) to The Irishman, his latest collaboration with Martin Scorsese (a partnership which also yielded New York, New York, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, The Wolf of Wall Street, and Silence), the individualistic and intuitive New York-born producer of classics including The Right Stuff and Round Midnight, and director of The Net, among many others, Irwin Winkler has had an inestimable, energizing impact on the American movie game. Now, in his new memoir A Life in Movies: Stories from 50 Years in Hollywood, Winkler, who has seen it all and then some, tells his tales from the trenches—a survivor still fighting on for a popular film culture that speaks to adults. Metrograph celebrates Winkler's legendary career with screenings of two of the many, many superb films that he’s had a hand in seeing made.
Screenings followed by a short film on Winkler's career, Q&As with Winkler and special guests, and signings of A Life in Movies.
