Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie
Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie

In Person: Huntington-born Filmmaker Jeremy Newberger
An electrifying portrait of Morton Downey Jr., the "Father of Trash Television"
Before entire networks were built on populist personalities; before reality morphed into a TV genre; the masses fixated on a single, sociopathic star: controversial talk-show host Morton Downey, Jr. In the late '80s, Downey tore apart the traditional talk format by turning debate of current issues into a gladiator pit. His blow-smoke-in-your-face style drew a rabid cult following, but also the title "Father of Trash Television." Downey is no longer with us but his influence continues in the work of TV hosts like Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck. Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie dissects the mind and motivation of television's most notorious agitator.
USA, 2013, 90 min., color, DCP / Directors: Jeremy Newberger, Daniel A. Miller, Seth Kramer / With: Morton Downey Jr., Al Sharpton, Gloria Allred, Michele Bachmann, Glenn Beck, Bill Boggs, Pat Buchanan, Herman Cain, Stanley Crouch, Alan M. Dershowitz, Chris Elliott, Victoria Jackson , Sally Jessy Raphael, Curtis Sliwa

"CRITIC'S CHOICE. This pull-no-punches portrait shocks and amuses with equal frequency."  Jeanette Catsoulis, NY Times
