Dir: Ron Mann





Ron Mann’s latest documentary is an affectionate tribute to acclaimed filmmaker Robert Altman (M*A*S*H, Nashville,Short Cuts), exploring the life and films of a maverick director who always refused to bow to Hollywood’s conventions.

Taking his subject as a cue, Mann eschews conventional interview techniques with the many actors and filmmakers who appear in the film; instead asking them to define the term ‘Altmanesque’, which leads to a more personal and insightful take on what made this particular director so successful.

Altman’s unique style of filmmaking won him friends and enemies, earned him world-wide critical praise (and occasionally scathing criticism), and proved that it is possible to make truly independent films. Mann’s documentary offers fascinating insights into a singular creative mind.
