Alan Pakula: Going for Truth

Alan Pakula: Going for Truth

Alan Pakula: Going For Truth exemplifies what every great documentary aspires to be: a truthful, revealing dossier that educates while it entertains.” — The Observer

Alan Pakula: Going for Truth encompasses the personal and professional life of Alan J. Pakula, a lauded filmmaker and extremely private man, who was unflinching in his commitment to bringing some of the most memorable movies of the last half of the 20th century to the big screen. Always placing story first and going for truth, with anonymity being his preferred style of directing, this elusive artist finally gets his spotlight. Alan Alda, Jane Fonda and Dustin Hoffman, stars from his wide-ranging filmography including To Kill A Mockingbird, Klute, All the President's Men and Sophie's Choice, bring Pakula to life once more after he was lost so tragically.
