Still image from the film Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You
Arguably the most influential creator, writer, and producer in the history of television, Norman Lear brought primetime into step with the times. Using comedy and indelible characters, his legendary 1970s shows (All In the Family, Maude, Good Times, and The Jeffersons) boldly cracked open dialogue and shifted the national consciousness, injecting enlightened humanism into sociopolitical debates on race, class, creed, and feminism. Documentarians Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing (Jesus Camp, DETROPIA) reveal a psychologically rich man whose extraordinary contributions emerge from both his personal story and a dialogue with the world. (2K DCP Presentation)
