WORLD PREMIERE Oscar winner James Ivory began his storied career making documentaries in India. While screening one at India’s Consulate in New York City, he met his life and business partner, Ismail Merchant. As Merchant Ivory Productions, they made 44 films, including such classics as Howard’s End, A Room with a View, and The Remains of the Day. Jaw-dropping behind-the-scenes stories of their creative process and impact are shared here in fresh interviews with Vanessa Redgrave, Emma Thompson, Helena Bonham Carter, and more—and, of course, the spry 95-year-old Ivory himself. – Jaie Laplante
