Additional Information

“Incisive and haunting, like Didion’s best writing” (Variety), director Griffin Dunne’s documentary captures the mythic allure of his aunt’s incredible life as a writer and cultural icon and her unimaginable experiences with loss. Friends and collaborators including Vanessa Redgrave, Harrison Ford, and Anna Wintour offer insightful interviews. The film’s most crucial voice however belongs to Didion herself. (2017, dir. Griffin Dunne, 93 min.)

A Q&A with Griffin Dunne follows the screening.
