NYC Premiere Filmmaker Nancy Buirski’s newest film examines the gifted, fascinating people behind the dark and difficult masterpiece that is 1969’s enduring classic Midnight Cowboy. Buriski delves deep into New York City in a troubled time of cultural ferment; and the era that made a movie and the movie that made an era. Featuring extensive archival material and compelling new interviews, this extraordinary documentary illuminates how one film captured the essence of a time and a place, reflecting a rapidly changing society with striking clarity.
