Description

Winner of the Best Film prize at last year’s Montreal World Film Festival. A unique vision of legendary Hungarian filmmaker Michael Curtiz and his struggles in making his classic film, Casablanca. This stylish dramatization pays homage to Curtiz’ trademark ‘Noir’ aesthetic, and also recreates his struggles with a zealous government agent, paralleling the conflict raging overseas for those European cast and crew members who had fled Nazi oppression. Casablanca, the cinematic masterpiece of pro-Allied propaganda, garnered eight Oscar nominations and three awards, including Best Director and Best Picture.
