PVJFF: Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You
Tue, March 21, 2017, 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM EDT
How did a poor Jewish kid from Connecticut bring us Archie Bunker and become one of the most successful television producers ever? Norman Lear brought provocative subjects like war, poverty, and prejudice into 120 million homes every week. He proved that social change was possible through an unlikely prism: laughter.
Still working at age 95, writer and activist Norman Lear is the man behind such hugely influential television sitcoms as All in the Family, Sanford and Son, The Jeffersons, Good Times, and Maude. The film features interviews with Lear as well as George Clooney, Bill Moyers, John Amos, Amy Poehler, Jon Stewart, and others.
