Woody Allen: A Documentary + Q&A

Director Robert B. Weide discusses the experience of working closely with one of his personal heroes to make Woody Allen: A Documentary, a comprehensive portrait of the comedian and filmmaker's career to date. Weide reveals that Allen had an 'agenda to avoid this kind of tribute until he died', but only because he felt unworthy of such attention. Weide shares anecdotes about Allen's brutally critical stance on his own work, and his unwillingness to engage with modern technology.
