Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir

Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir
Pittsburgh Premiere
Director: Laurent Bouzereau
2011, United Kingdom, 90 minutes

Actor, director, Krakow Ghetto survivor, American fugitive -- filmmaker Roman Polanski addresses every aspect of his celebrated, tragic and scandalous life in this intimate documentary. Interviewed by a long-time friend, Polanski sets the record straight on the 1968 murder of his pregnant wife, Sharon Tate, by the Manson cult, and his 1977 sexual encounter with a 13-year-old girl that led to his exile and, 30 years later, arrest in Switzerland. Clips from such Polanski classics as ROSEMARY'S BABY, CHINATOWN and THE PIANIST connect the Oscar-winner’s anguished past with his artistic achievements, making for the definitive picture of this complex artist.
