Starring Robert Downey Sr., Costa-Gavras, Lina Wertmüller
Vulgar, volatile, and brilliant, New York film exhibitor/distributor Donald Rugoff was seminal in bringing international and art films to a wide audience during the 1960s and ’70s. Yet he died in obscurity, rumored to have been buried in a pauper’s grave. In this documentary, Rugoff protégé Ira Deutchman embarks on a journey through cinema history to investigate the life and legacy of a forgotten legend.
