IN CONVERSATION WITH ETHAN HAWKE AND BARRY POLTERMANN: THE LAST MOVIE STARS
Thanks to DocNYC and Malikkah Rollins for inviting us to speak at Editing Day for DocNYC this weekend.
Don Argott (Framing John DeLorean) hosted the panel, which DocNYC described as “a vibrant conversation with series director Ethan Hawke and editor Barry Poltermann as they go behind the scenes of their complex, acclaimed storytelling endeavor that explores the careers and decades-long relationship of Hollywood icons Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman. Creating a compelling story in the edit room that honors Newman and Woodward’s expansive careers and rocky marriage is a feat. Add to the mix access to a treasure trove of rich archival material plus thousands of pages of written transcript from Newman’s unpublished memoir and we have a multilayered editing experience.”
