I just read an interesting article in the L.A. Times about a new documentary called "Tell Them Who You Are" about Haskell Wexler. It was made by his son and looks very interesting... Has anyone else read/heard anything about it?

I did additional photography on the film. It's great. Go see it. I'll say no more.

I know this thread has been up for a while, but I just saw this movie at the Arclight here in L.A. and was moved to right something about it. This movie was very funny and, more importantly, tremendously moving. I think everyone should see it, not just people interested in cinematography. Does anyone know if it's gonna get an actual release or will it just be playing in random theaters from time to time?

Just watched this one on DVD. An excellent film, amateurish but a deeply personal and well constructed mirror for Haskell's son to hold up to him.

The DVD's extras are great as well, especially the filming of Haskell's initial reaction to the film...quite emotional.

It was great to see the likes of Bill Butler and Connie Hall chiming in on the various aspects of Wexler's personality.
