Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You

How did a poor Jewish kid from Connecticut create such indelible characters as Archie Bunker, Maude Findlay, Florida Evans, and George Jefferson? Norman Lear became one of the most successful television producers ever by brining provocative subjects like war, poverty, women’s rights, and racism into 120 million homes every week. The opening night film of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You is a delightful and revelatory documentary about a man who proved that social change was possible through an unlikely prism: laughter.

The trailblazing TV showrunner gets a lively tribute in Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady's technically imaginative doc.
Stunning! A dynamite documentary
