And Everything Is Going Fine

Director Steven Soderbergh has pursued a radically eclectic array of projects, from sex, lies, and videotape (1989) and the blockbusting Ocean's franchise to the epic Che and the small-budget project The Girlfriend Experience with porn star Sasha Grey. He first worked with the enigmatic writer/monologuist Spalding Gray (Swimming to Cambodia) when he created a role for him in his third film, King of the Hill (1993). Gray later solicited him to film his monologue project Gray's Anatomy (1996). Gray died in 2004, presumably a suicide, and eventually his wife offered Soderbergh access to years of filmed monologues and home movies. He's created a documentary biopic from that material, largely letting Gray tell his own story. Soderbergh will attend this screening and participate in a Q&A afterward. Tickets $15 general admission, $12 New Orleans Film Society members. — Will Coviello
