D.A. Pennebaker Tribute: City & Sound
Curated by Warren Etheredge, USA, 74 minutes
D.A. Pennebaker is widely regarded as a pioneer of cinéma vérité, or the direct cinema style of documentary filmmaking. When presenting Pennebaker with an Oscar for Lifetime Achievement in 2012, filmmaker Michael Moore noted that Pennebaker was one of the filmmakers who “invented nothing less than the modern documentary.” Penny, as he was fondly called, passed away in August 2019, at 94. CITY & SOUND is our tribute to Pennebaker and his influence on successive generations. In this special program, we glimpse his predecessors’ efforts, offer reminders of Pennebaker’s iconic work, and witness the resonance of his artistry in contemporary short-form documentaries and music videos.
