Arguably the most influential creator, writer and producer in the history of television, Norman Lear brought primetime into step with the times, boldly shattering long-entrenched taboos. Using comedy and indelible characters, his legendary 1970s shows such as All in the Family, Maude, Sanford and Son, Good Times and The Jeffersons cracked open dialogue and shifted the national consciousness, injecting enlightened humanism into sociopolitical debates on race, class, creed and feminism. At the height of his success, he dropped out of television to pursue political activism and made a major impact in a new field. This definitive chronicle of Mr. Lear’s life, work and achievements features an incredibly candid interview with Mr. Lear, now 93, as vital and engaged as he ever was. Top-notch cinéma vérité documentarians Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing (Jesus Camp, Detropia) fashion a dynamic portrait that matches the spirit of their subject, revealing a psychologically rich man whose extraordinary contributions emerge from both his personal story and a dialogue with the world. Includes appearances by George Clooney, Jon Stewart, Rob Reiner, Amy Poehler and Phil Rosenthal.
