This edition: Albert Maysles

Episode Details

Original tape date: June 11, 2001.

Albert Maysles is widely recognized as a pioneer of the direct cinema style of documentary. With his late brother David, he earned critical, peer and audience acclaim as among the first filmmakers to make nonfiction features - films in which life's dramas unfold without traditional devices like scripts, sets or narration. Maysles films are imbued with integrity, great storytelling and superb artistic rendering. This episode features excerpts from Salesman, Grey Gardens and his work with Bob Drew on Primary (the story of JFK and Hubert Humphrey's 1960 campaign trip through Wisconsin).
