ROY’S WORLD at the Chicago Critics Film Fest

I couldn’t be more excited that a film I produced, Rob Christopher’s documentary ROY’S WORLD: BARRY GIFFORD’S CHICAGO, is receiving its Illinois premiere at the Music Box Theatre as part of the great Chicago Critics Film Festival next month. The film is narrated by Willem Dafoe, Matt Dillon and Lili Taylor and consists almost entirely of never-before-seen archival footage of Chicago in the mid-20th century and a couple of animated sequences. The film’s subject, master writer Barry Gifford (WILD AT HEART), will be there in person for a Q&A! You can buy tickets on the Music Box website here.
