This is not a documentary about the making of Midnight Cowboy. It is about a humane and groundbreaking masterpiece and the flawed but gifted people who made it. It is about a troubled era of cultural ferment, social and political change, about broken dreams and strivers, then and now. It is about an era that made a movie and a movie that made an era.
(*Director Nancy Buirski will be in attendance for the August 25th – 7.30pm screening! The talkback will be moderated by Larry Toppman)
