SYNOPSIS: “The Brothers Warner” is the story of a family who rose from immigrant poverty through personal tragedies persevering to create a major studio with a social conscience. An intensely intimate portrait of the four film pioneers who founded and ran Warner Bros. studios for more than 50 years, presented like a love letter. Written and directed by Cass Warner (Harry Warner’s granddaughter and author of the book by the same name), and produced by Warner Sisters Productions. This epic story includes never before seen footage, and photos from the Warner family archives. Recently, “The Brothers Warner” won the HBO Film Producers Award, and is for those who crave the lore & lure of old Hollywood. CAST: Dennis Hopper, Debbie Reynolds, Norman Lear, Sherry Lansing, Tab Hunter, and many others.
This screening is part of the American Cinematheque two-weekend tribute to the films from Warner Bros. studio through March 21st.
