A Letter To Elia
This collaborative portrait of the life and career of Elia Kazan takes the form of a cine-letter directly addressed from Scorsese to Kazan himself.
Extending upon the semi-biographical project begun with A Personal Journey. Through American Movies, Scorsese's intimate, personal account invites us to re-evaluate the emotive formal prowess of Kazan's film direction, whilst also bringing to light the filmmaker's fraught personal and professional experiences, including his notorious testimony to the House Committee on Un-American Activities in 1952.
Features illuminating and evocative accounts of such key Scorsese influences as East of Eden, Wild River and America America.
