Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You

"I was concerned about what I was seeing on TV - mixing politics and religion." Music Box has debuted a trailer for the documentary Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You, which profiles the life and work of legendary TV producer Norman Lear. From documentary filmmakers Heidi Ewing & Rachel Grady, this premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to mostly positive buzz. I wrote in my review from the fest: "Not only is Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You a fascinating look at the 'history of TV', in a sense, but it's also a remarkably eye-opening examination of how to be yourself, find happiness, and strive on even with so much opposition or absurdity all around." Even if you don't know much about Lear, it's enjoyable.

Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You

Arguably the most influential creator, writer, and producer in the history of television, Norman Lear brought primetime into step with the times. Using comedy and indelible characters, his legendary 1970s shows such as All In the Family, Maude, Good Times, and The Jeffersons, boldly cracked open dialogue and shifted the national consciousness, injecting enlightened humanism into sociopolitical debates on race, class, creed, and feminism. Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You is co-directed by filmmakers Heidi Ewing & Rachel Grady, of the docs Jesus Camp, 12th & Delaware and The World Is as Big or As Small as You Make It previously. This was the opening night documentary at this year's Sundance Film Festival (read my review). Music Box Films will release Ewing & Grady's Norman Lear doc in theaters starting July 8th.
