NEW RESTORATATION Long before documentary series were trending, filmmakers D.A. Pennebaker, Chris Hegedus and Pat Powell created this ground-breaking episodic look at a Washington DC legislative battle in 1977-78. First aired on public television, the series has scarcely been seen since. But its themes of politicians struggling to fix America’s energy policy feel all too familiar in today’s push for a Green New Deal. DOC NYC will show the newly restored chapter “Filibuster” that makes for a gripping film on its own.  – Thom Powers

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Chris Hegedus and film subjects Barry Direnfeld and Thomas Susman.

This screening is co-presented by NYWIFT.
