Independent film maverick. Trailblazing writer/director who takes chances with style and script. Inspirational humanist. Box-office success. Are we talking an Indie filmmaker from the 1970s or 1990s? No — Roger Corman!  While known for working fast (with some of his films made in a mere two days) and wallowing in the B-movie world of monsters, bad special effects, schlocky acting, and plentiful nudity, Corman is also a respected rebel of cinema, dealing with hot-button social topics like race and feminism, and having created his own production and distribution company (tagging it “America’s Biggest Independent.” ) Plus, he also taught the next generation of film greats, including everyone from Coppola, Scorsese and Demme to even Ron Howard. From Corman’s first feature in 1955 to the set of his new film Dinoshark, this entertaining documentary has all the blood and guts of the artist’s lurid and fascinating career, with essential insights from contemporaries and students.  Learn the roots of American indie filmmaking, laced with boobs and violence! After the film, join us for a Q&A with director Alex Stapleton and other special guests!
Dir. Alex Stapleton, 2011, 35mm, 101 min.
