A Conversation with Filmmaker Terry Zwigoff

Retrospective: Terry Zwigoff

Terry Zwigoff was inspired to take up filmmaking to tell the story of the obscure blues musician Howard Armstrong. The resulting film, Louie Bluie, hinted at Zwigoff’s penchant for the esoteric and a fascination with characters—both real and fictitious—that live and work on the fringes of the mainstream. We’re thrilled to present this full retrospective as part of our 25th Anniversary Season and to host the filmmaker on October 16 for a conversation about his career, which also includes a documentary on Robert Crumb, two collaborations with cartoonist Daniel Clowes, and Bad Santa, one of the most unlikely holiday films ever made.

After Louie Bluie and his breakthrough with the landmark documentary Crumb, Terry Zwigoff has gone on to create a distinctive and unlikely career making feature films about alienated misfits. Join us for a discussion with Terry Zwigoff and Director of Film/Video David Filipi that’s punctuated by clips from Zwigoff’s films.
