WHAT SHE SAID: THE ART OF PAULINE KAEL tells the story of longtime New Yorker film critic and best-selling author Pauline Kael. Featuring a rich blend of interviews with filmmakers and colleagues, never before-seen archival footage, and Kael’s own words—the latter of which are drawn from interviews, private letters, and published writings that are narrated by Emmy Award-winning actress Sarah Jessica Parker. WHAT SHE SAID depicts the storied writer’s battle to make a name for herself through covering some of the biggest cinematic milestones of the 20th century. Director Rob Garver; writer, editor, and author Craig Seligman; and writer Stephanie Zacharek will be in attendance for a Q&A following the film.
