STUDIOCANAL UK ACQUIRES NOAH BAUMBACH AND JAKE PALTROW’S DE PALMA FROM A24
A24 and STUDIOCANAL today announce the UK acquisition of Director-Producer’s Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow’s much anticipated documentary DE PALMA.
In this lively, illuminating and unexpectedly moving documentary, directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow engage in a personal and candid discussion with De Palma, exploring not only his life and work but also his singular approach to the craft of filmmaking and his remarkable experiences navigating the film business, from his early days as the bad boy of New Hollywood to his more recent years as a respected veteran of the field. In the end, what emerges is a funny, honest, and incisive portrait of a truly one-of-a-kind artist, and an exhilarating behind-the-scenes look at the last 50 years of the film industry through the eyes of someone who has truly seen it all.
De Palma is One of the most talented, influential, and iconoclastic filmmakers of all time, Brian De Palma’s career started in the 60s and has included such acclaimed and diverse films as Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, Scarface, The Untouchables, Carlito’s Way, and Mission: Impossible.
Following Premieres at The Venice and New York Film Festivals A24 opens in the USA June 10 2016 with UK release announcements forthcoming.
