Zeitgeist Films has picked up North American rights to Jonathan Lee’s documentary Paul Goodman Changed My Life (pictured), which will premiere this fall at New York’s Film Forum.
The film is a portrait of the late writer, sociologist and intellectual, who is best known for his 1960 non-fiction book Growing Up Absurd.
The documentary features interviews with family, peers, and activists whose encounters with Goodman or his writing changed their lives. It also promises “rich archival footage” and readings by Goodman and others.
A national U.S. release will follow the fall premiere.
