The War Room (Memorial screening)

Dir: D. A. Pennebaker & Chris Hegedus
United States / 1993 / 97mins

In tribute to the late, great and much-loved master of cinema verité, D.A. Pennebaker's wife and long term collaborator Chris Hegedus joins us for a screening of their 90s classic, The War Room.

The 1992 presidential election was a triumph not only for Bill Clinton but also for the new breed of strategists who guided him to the White House - and changed the face of politics in the process.

For this electric, behind-closed-doors account of that campaign, Pennebaker and Hegedus captured the brainstorming and bull sessions of Clinton's crack team of consultants - especially James Carville and George Stephanopoulos, who became media stars in their own right as they injected a savvy, youthful spirit and spontaneity into the process of campaigning.

This special memorial screening will be introduced by Storyville's Mandy Chang in conversation with Chris Hegedus, director and wife of D.A Pennebaker.
