Running Time: 109 minutes
Iconic writer, director, actor, comedian and musician Woody Allen allows his life and creative process to be documented on-camera for the first time. With his unprecedented access, Emmy®-winning Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Robert Weide follows the notoriously private film legend over a year and a half to create the ultimate film biography.
Beginning with Allen's childhood, Woody Allen: A Documentary chronciles the trajectory and longevity of Allen's career from his work as a TV scribe, stand-up comedian and frequent TV talk show guest, to a writer-director averaging one film per year for more than forty years. Director Weide covers Allen's earliest film work in Take the Money and Run, Bananas, Sleeper and Love and Death; frequent Oscar® favourites such as Annie Hall, Manhattan, Zelig, Broadway Danny Rose, Purple Rose of Cairo, Crimes and Misdemeanours, Husbands and Wives, Bullets Over Broadway and Mighty Aphrodite; and his recent globetrotting phase with Match Point, Vicky Cristina Barcelona and his latest success, Midnight in Paris.
