The true story of Donald Rugoff, the crazy genius who kicked art films into the mainstream in the 1960's and 1970's with outrageous marketing schemes and pure bluster. Rugoff’s impact on cinema culture in the United States is inestimable, and his influence on the art film business is undeniable. Yet, mysteriously, Rugoff has become a virtually forgotten figure.
Starring Lina Wertmüller, Robert Downey Sr., Costa-Gavras
Director Ira Deutchman
