Storyline

Following the publication of the first book about director Sidney J. Furie, this full-length documentary examines the life and career of the Toronto-born filmmaker. It is a journey that encompasses over 55 years, as we follow his story from Canada to London and finally to Hollywood. In the midst of the 83-year-old Furie's biographical recounting, he directs two last personal projects, shot digitally on shoestring budgets, from his first solo scripts since 1961. The latter of the two is shot in Israel, and is the culmination of a lifetime's obsession with the Holocaust. The film is an intimate portrait of a unique, prolific, and quietly influential filmmaker, a man with an impressive resumé who has stood behind the camera on great films such as The Ipcress File (1965), Lady Sings the Blues (1972), The Boys in Company C (1978), The Leather Boys (1964), The Entity (1982), The Appaloosa (1966), Little Fauss and Big Halsy (1970), and many others.
