The Emmy-nominated documentary "No Subtitles Necessary: Laszlo & Vilmos" and the Oscar®-nominated feature "Easy Rider" will kick off the Topanga Film Festival on August 19. "No Subtitles Necessary," a film by James Chressanthis, traces the journey of renowned cinematographers Vilmos Zsigmond and Laszlo Kovacs from the 1956 Soviet invasion of their home city in Hungary to Hollywood, and their ensuing careers and brotherly friendship. The documentary has won multiple awards at film festivals around the world and premiered on PBS’ "Independent Lens" series last November.

The screening of "No Subtitles" begins at 6 p.m. at the Pine Tree Circle Screening Tent, followed by "Easy Rider" at 9 p.m. at Abuelita’s restaurant (open air). "Easy Rider" remains an epic road movie in cinema history, starring Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson and featuring some of the most memorable open landscape footage shot by Kovacs, including scenes shot in Topanga. Hopper is also featured in "No Subtitles" talking about Kovacs and their relationship. Chressanthis and his special guests will answer questions after the screening.
