In 1959, Truman Capote set out to create a new literary form: the "non-fiction novel." With the resulting book he ultimately showed that investigative journalism can be just as engaging as fiction. The 1976 film adaptation brings this disturbing true crime story to the screen. Slate’s Kristen Meinzer and Newsday’s Rafer Guzman introduce the film.
This is the third in a four-part film series offered in connection with the exhibition, “Truman Capote’s Brooklyn: The Lost Photographs of David Attie.”
