Share Screening of LUNCH -- plus Q&A with the filmmaker. Preceded by the NEJ winner of short documentaries Date Farmers: Desert Detritus Becomes Chicano Pop Art

Event Details


For the past 40 years, a group of comedy writers and directors has gathered 

every other Wednesday for lunch – and other nourishment.
 
The members and their meeting places have changed occasionally, 
but their friendship and humor persist.
 
Lunch describes more than a single meal.  At each, their perceptive comments are  sharp and brilliant.  But their meetings mean more to them than affable,
professional companionship; rather, a need to keep wit and wisdom alive and well.
These are the fabled guys that made America funny.  
 
Starring:
Sid Caesar, Monty Hall, Arthur Hiller, Rocky Kalish, Hal Kanter, Arthur Marx,
Gary Owens, John Rappaport, Carl Reiner, Matty Simmons, and Ben Starr 
Written, Produced, and Directed by Donna Kanter 
 
LUNCH recently won the feature doucumentary class at Los Angeles Press Club's National Entertainment Journalism Awards. This is what the judges said about about the documentary:
 
“Lunch” should be consumed ravenously.  There’s enough wisdom, laughter and comedic insight to satisfy any appetite.  The Heavyweights at this 40 year-old gathering at Factory's Deli include Carl Reiner, Sid Caesar, Arthur Hiller and Hal Kanter—among other comedy-genius regulars.  Inspiration comes with pickles, coleslaw and tongue!
 
The filmmaker, Donna Kanter, and John Rappaport will attend the screening.
Moderator: Ted Johnson of Variety

Date Farmers: Desert Detritus Becomes Chicano Pop Art

by Juan Devis, Drew Tewksbury, Bruce Dickson and Justin Cram, KCET

NEJ Judge’s comments: “Brings to life politically charged Pop Art that expresses both individuality and the pride of cultural heritage. This piece is itself an artistic revelation with great interviews and beautiful videography and editing.”
