White Wall Cinema's Socially Distanced Spring Screen presents



DIRECTOR: Martin Scorsese


STARRING: Fran Lebowitz

Pre-dating the wildy popular Netflix collaboration 'Pretend It's A City' between Fran Lebowitz and Martin Scorsese this lesser seen (in the UK at least) HBO Doc 'Public Speaking' is a more wide ranging introduction and discussion with beloved public speaker, humourist, procrastinating best selling author and occasional actor born of interviews with Scorsese and author Toni Morrison. Considered 'a modern-day Dorothy Parker' (New York Times) Lebowitz's famous sardonic wit addresses a wide range of subjects including art, literature, her sexuality, and modern life in this ode to the art of conversation. A perfect anti-dote to today's dumbed downed discourse Fran reminds us just how interesting, funny and annoying life really is. Don't miss this rare chance to see this brilliant and engaging piece of documentary making.
