It’s incredibly exciting to discover new film and offer up a sneak peek, especially if the documentary celebrates that brilliant moment when the lights go down. From Academy Award-nominated director Daniel Raim (The Man on Lincoln’s Nose) comes Something’s Gonna Live, the real-life story of the friendship and film artistry of six of Hollywood’s master art directors and cinematographers, including production designer Robert F. Boyle (North by Northwest, Fiddler on the Roof) who passed away at the age of 100 on August 4. There’s no doubt this film will touch a chord in all of us who relish the movies of a bygone era that defined great American cinema.
Follow the lives and passions of the following film greats: Robert “Bob” Boyle, Henry “Bummy” Bumstead (To Kill A Mockingbird, The Sting) and Albert Nozaki (The War of the Worlds, The Ten Commandments), storyboard artist Harold Michelson (The Graduate, Star Trek: The Motion Picture), as well as master cinematographers Haskell Wexler (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Medium Cool) and Conrad Hall (In Cold Blood, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid). Described “not a nostalgia piece, but an exploration of the artist’s moral obligation to truthfully portray the human condition,” this film will remind us why we adore The Movies and should continue to honor the behind-the-screen legends that bring our inner fantasies to life.
