Hal


Screening: MCT Center for the Performing Arts, Tuesday May 22 @ 7:00 pm
Montana Premiere

Hal Ashby is one of Hollywood’s most infamous rebels making seven films in just nine years, challenging notions of politics, race, and sex. Constantly fighting the studio’s control over his films, Ashby’s obsessive genius led to an unprecedented string of Oscar®-winning classics, including Harold and Maude, Shampoo and Being There. But as contemporaries Coppola, Scorsese and Spielberg rose to blockbuster stardom in the 1980s, Ashby’s uncompromising nature played out as a cautionary tale of art versus commerce.
