Becoming Henry/Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir
Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir
Los Angeles Premiere
Documentary/France/90 minutes/2012
Directed by Laurent Bouzereau

Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival

Actor, director, Krakow Ghetto survivor, American fugitive - filmmaker Roman Polanski addresses every aspect of his celebrated, tragic and scandalous life in this intimate documentary. Interviewed by a long-time friend, Polanski sets the record straight on the 1968 murder of his pregnant wife, Sharon Tate, by the Manson cult, and his 1977 sexual encounter with a 13-year-old girl that led to his exile and, 30 years later, arrest in Switzerland. Clips from such Polanski classics as "Rosemary's Baby," "Chintown" and most especially, "The Pianist" connect the Oscar-winner's anguished past as a survivor of the Holocaust with his artistic achievements, making for the definitive picture of this complex artist.

Q&A to follow film with director Laurent Bouzereau, moderated by Danielle Berrin, "The Hollywood Jew" from the Jewish Journal.
