February 16, 2011

Next Wednesday (23) at 7:30 pm at the Film Forum, one of our generations greatest directors, Martin Scorsese, will make an appearance for a Q&A session following the premiere of his new documentary film, Public Speaking. Unfortunately, there are no more tickets available for purchase pre-show but there are still a limited amount for those who show up the day of. Box office opens at 12:15 pm so check for that but no guarantees. Film Forum is located on:

209 W Houston Street
New York, NY 10014

About the film (from Film Forum website):

Wise, brilliant and funny, Fran Lebowitz hit the New York literary scene in the early ‘70s when Andy Warhol hired the unknown scribe to write a column for Interview magazine. Today, she’s an acclaimed author with legions of fans who adore her acerbic wit. Directed in the inimitable and energetic style of Scorsese’s early documentaries “Italian American” and “American Boy,” PUBLIC SPEAKING captures the author in conversation at New York’s Waverly Inn, in an onstage discussion with longtime friend and celebrated writer Toni Morrison and on the streets of New York City. Lebowitz offers insights on timely issues such as gender, race and gay rights, as well as her pet peeves, including celebrity culture, smoking bans, tourists and strollers. Of her beloved city, she says, “New York was not better [in the ‘70s] because there was more crime. It was better because it was cheaper.” Running time: 82 min
