HUGH HEFNER’S AFTER DARK: SPEAKING OUT IN AMERICA
2018, 101 min, Canada, Dir: Brigitte Berman

, 2018, 101 min. Dir. . From the Oscar-winning director of ARTIE SHAW: TIME IS ALL YOU’VE GOT comes this remarkable documentary of one of America’s most influential and controversial cultural icons, Hugh Hefner. In addition to its considered portrait of Hefner as a man of his times who also transcended them, this film features an incredible array of archival footage from his landmark TV series “Playboy's Penthouse” (1959-60) and “Playboy After Dark” (1968-70). Along with martinis and bonhomie, Hef’s shows offered cultural and political insight from luminaries such as Lenny Bruce, Dick Gregory and Gore Vidal, as well as sensational live musical performances by Nina Simone, Joan Baez, Steppenwolf, Ray Charles and Sammy Davis Jr. “An illuminating glimpse at a time when Hugh Hefner was on the cultural cutting edge.” - Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.
