Centered around an extensive, long-forgotten 1970 interview with David Frost and dramatized by the voice of Fanny Ardant, the upcoming documentary MARIA BY CALLAS—directed by Tom Volf—takes a subjective look at the twentieth-century singer and personality nonpareil, with a focus on rare performance footage and recordings that capture her work onstage and in front of the camera of Pier Paolo Pasolini.
The opening weekend of the 2018 LA Film Festival will feature a special screening of the film in Hollywood.
Friday, September 21, at 7:30 pm.
