Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes

Martin Scorsese To Be Feted For His Documentary Film Career

Monday, June 5---Legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese will be honored at the SILVERDOCS: AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival, which launches on June 13th. Scorsese will be commemorated at the Charles Guggenheim Symposium on Thursday, June 15th at the AFI Silver Center, the hub of the annual documentary event. The Symposium and Award are a tribute to the late Washington DC filmmaker and philanthropist Charles Guggenheim.

Scorsese is one of the rare Hollywood directors who has worked in the non-fiction format since the beginning of his career. His personal documentaries including ITALIAN AMERICAN (1977), a hilarious look at his family and the Lower East Side neighborhood where he grew up and his films covering the influences of classic Hollywood films ( A JOURNEY THROUGH AMERICAN FILM, 1995) and Italian neorealism cinema (MIO VIAGGIO EN ITALIA,1999) have been personal journeys into Scorsese´s most intimate passions and inspirations.

He has long had an interest in making films about music, his other great love. From the 1978 modern classic THE LAST WALTZ (considered by many film critics to be the greatest music concert film ever made) to his recent MARTIN SCORSESE PRESENT THE BLUES (2003), the director draws on the musical influences that have figured in his better known fiction works. Last year, Scorsese´s film on legend Bob Dylan (NO DIRECTION HOME) won many international prizes, including the television Emmy Award).

Scorsese will be joined on stage of the AFI Silver Center for a dialogue with famed independent icon Jim Jarmusch. The on stage talk will be punctuated by well chosen clips from Scorsese's prolific documentary career.

As an added bonus, immediately following the event, the Festival will present a special Outdoor Screening of THE LAST WALTZ, the director´s landmark music documentary that chronicles a tribute concert to The Band, featuring such other luminaries as Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Eric Clapton and other rock-n-roll legends. It will be quite the event.
