A new feature-length documentary and a hearty helping of double-feature retrospective screenings celebrate Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood‘s life in film June 5 through 11 at the Aero Theatre
in Santa Monica. Using the post-production of Eastwood’s World War II diptych as a springboard, director Michael Henry Wilson’s Clint Eastwood: A Life in Film engages the notoriously reticent multi-hyphenate in a surprisingly easygoing and intimate dialogue about art and life, illuminating his human side as well as his untamed creativity. In addition to obvious fare like 1971’s Dirty Harry, High Plains Drifter and the Oscar-winning Unforgiven, meanwhile, other films screening during the Aero’s week-long retrospective include The Beguiled, A Perfect World, Breezy and Honkytonk Man. Wilson and editor Joel Cox will also appear in person at select screenings for Q&A sessions about their work.
The Aero Theatre
is located at 1328 Montana Avenue in Santa Monica
