"An Actor's Director:" The Life and Work of Sidney Lumet
Acclaimed as the ultimate New York movie director, Sidney Lumet began his astonishing five-decades-long directing career with the now classic 12 Angry Men, followed by such landmark films as Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, and Network. Sidney Lumet: A Life, written by Professor Maura Spiegel, is the first biography of the American director whose life and work traces a line through American entertainment history.
Joining the author in conversation is A.O. Scott, American journalist and chief film critic for the New York Times. Maura Spiegel has been teaching literature and film at Columbia University for over two decades. She is the co-director of the Division of Narrative Medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, where she teaches film to first year medical students.
