Sag Harbor Cinema and Hamptons Doc Fest continue their annual collaboration during the documentary festival with a co-presented screening of Turn Every Page: The Adventures of Robert Caro and Robert Gottlieb, followed by a Q&A with the film’s director Lizzie Gottlieb and with Pulitzer Prize winning author and member of SHC’s Honorary Board, Robert Caro. The Q&A will be moderated by the Cinema’s Founding Artistic Director, Giulia D’Agnolo Vallan.
“Profound, funny, beautifully paced, and intellectually riveting as only the match of two literary legends of this caliber can be, Turn Every Page is a perfect film for our audience. It is going to be a memorable afternoon, even more so because of Mr. Caro’s generous presence, together with Ms. Gottlieb, for the post screening Q&A,” says Giulia D’Agnolo Vallan.
Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Robert Caro and legendary editor Robert Gottlieb have worked and fought together for 50 years, forging one of publishing’s most iconic and productive partnerships. Now 86, Caro is working to complete the final volume of his masterwork, The Years of Lyndon Johnson; Gottlieb, 91, waits to edit it. The task of finishing their life’s work looms before them.
Directed by Gottlieb’s daughter, Lizzie Gottlieb, Turn Every Page explores their remarkable creative collaboration, including the behind-the-scenes drama of the making of Caro’s The Power Broker and the LBJ series. With humor and insight, this unique double portrait reveals the work habits, peculiarities and professional joys of these two ferocious intellects. It arrives at the culmination of a journey that has consumed both their lives and impacted generations of politicians, activists, writers and readers, and furthered our understanding of power and democracy.
Tickets are available on Hamptons Doc Fest’s website, hamptonsdocfest.com
