char•ac•ter, a new documentary on the subject of acting featuring icons of the screen and including the last-known interviews with celebrated actor Peter Falk and actor/director Sydney Pollack.
The film was directed by Drago Sumonja, (actor/filmmaker), who brought an honest, no-holds-barred approach to the project. The film features intimate conversations with Dabney Coleman, Charles Grodin, Mark Rydell, Harry Dean Stanton, Falk and Pollack about the crafts of acting, filmmaking and what it means to be an artist.
Coleman (Tootsie, Nine to Five, On Golden Pond, Boardwalk Empire) serves as “Character’s” unofficial narrator and interviewer, and his longtime friendships with these legendary actors and directors adds a special dimension to the film and a comfort level that Sumonja captured on film, rendered beautifully in black and white.
The film will be premiere across all VOD platforms November 27, 2012 from Indie Rights followed by a limited theatrical release opening in Los Angeles November 30 – December 6, 2012 distributed by Voltaire Media at the new Arena Cinema, next door to the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.
