Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, Amy Scott's debut documentary examines the career of oft-overlooked director Hal Ashby (Shampoo, Harold and Maude, The Last Detail).
"Amy Scott’s exuberant portrait—drawn from rare archival materials, interviews, personal letters, and audio recordings—explores that curious oversight, revealing a passionate, obsessive artist. Having hitchhiked to LA, Ashby eventually landed in the editing room, where a chance encounter with Norman Jewison brought his big break (and a lifelong friendship). Ashby’s subsequent films were guided by compassion and deep engagement with social justice, class, and race." (Sundance Film Festival)
