Summary: Uninterested in movies as a child, Barry Sonnenfeld aspired to a photography career. Fortunately for fans of Get Shorty, the Men in Black series, and early Coen Brothers films, Sonnenfeld's penchant for visual storytelling led him to NYU film school-and eventual renown as both a cinematographer and director. This program presents a conversation with the filmmaker highlighting his background, his artistic influences, his methods for choosing material, and his approach to actors and camera work. Accompanied by behind-the-scenes footage from several productions, Sonnenfeld describes collaborating with Joel Coen, being recruited by Scott Rudin to direct The Addams Family, casting and miscasting various actors, and other experiences.
