HIFF SummerDocs Presents “Listen to Me Marlon” at Guild Hall
August 1, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$21 – $23
With exclusive access to personal archive, this is the definitive Marlon Brando cinema documentary – much less a factual recital of Brando’s acting career and personal life than a creative odyssey into the mind and motivation of an enigma. Like an arch hypnotist Brando’s own voice leads the storytelling – there are no interviewees, no talking heads, just Marlon guiding us into the padlocked recesses of his own memory, and through the story of his life. In homage to the corkscrew personality of its subject, previously unheard audio tapes reveal witty and unexpected turns of Marlon’s thinking; dipping between light and dark, humor and self-psychoanalysis.
Following the screening, Alec Baldwin will host a conversation with filmmaker Stevan Riley
