New York-based Paladin is planning a theatrical launch for Angela Ismailos’ documentary Great Directors. The film, celebrating the work of 10 acclaimed living film directors, will open theatrically in New York, Los Angeles and other top US markets in late spring 2010.
The film features interviews with Bernardo Bertolucci, David Lynch, Stephen Frears, Agnes Varda, Ken Loach, Liliana Cavani, Todd Haynes, Catherine Breillat, Richard Linklater, and John Sayles. Paladin founder Mark Urman said in a statement: “I have always thought that directors are the true ‘superstars’ in the movie world so, to me, Angela’s film has the most star-studded ‘cast’ of any film I’ve seen in years. Having worked on projects by most of these directors at various points in my career, I take Great Directors very personally, and I trust that most ardent cinephiles will feel the same.”
