AUGUST 8 at 5 PM: Hal 

United States 2018 – 90 minutes, In English. Director: Amy Scott; With: Hal Ashby, Judd Apatow, Jeff Bridges, Rosanna Arquette, Jane Fonda.

Ashby’s singular genius led to an unprecedented string of Oscar-winning films in the 1970s. His legacy is undeniable. And yet, his obsessive and uncompromising nature became his downfall. In Hal, on-camera interviews with Oscar-winning actors Lee Grant, Jane Fonda, Jon Voight, Louis Gossett Jr., Jeff Bridges, and more recall how they were empowered by Ashby and granted collaborative freedom.
