Focus: Documentary Detours - David Holzman's Diary

  • The Plaza Theatre 1113 Kensington Rd NW Calgary, AB, T2N Canada (map)

Dir. Jim McBride | 1968 | 74min

Jim McBride’s groundbreaking docu-fiction anticipates the work of a diverse range of filmmakers, including Abbas Kiarostami, Christopher Guest and Sacha Baron Cohen. The more David tries to capture "truth on film", the further away from reality he gets – a fitting metaphor for the confusing time period in which the film was made. – Sundance Now, DocClub
