SALESMAN
1969, Janus Films, 85 min, USA, Dir: Albert Maysles, David Maysles

This landmark American documentary captures in vivid detail the bygone era of the door-to-door salesman. While laboring to sell a gold-embossed version of the Good Book, Paul Brennan and his colleagues target the beleaguered masses - then face the demands of quotas and the frustrations of life on the road. Following Brennan on his daily rounds, the Maysles discover a real-life Willy Loman, walking the line from hype to despair.


Screening format: DCP. Restored by the Academy Film Archive and the Film Foundation, with funding provided by the George Lucas Family Foundation.
