Steven Soderbergh – And Everything is Going Fine [Spalding Gray] (US, 2010)
89 minutes | Elebash Recital Hall (180 seats)

The late Spalding Gray was a brilliant playwright and actor, known for his dazzling, distinctive monologues, an art form all his own. Here, master filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, who collaborated with him on King of the Hill and Gray’s Anatomy, takes Gray’s own words–captured over 25 years—to craft a profound, insightful and wonderfully entertaining portrait of this quintessential American artist.

Steven Soderbergh (b. 1963) began making short 16-millimeter films with second-hand equipment around the age of 15. His first major break was when the rock group Yes assigned him to shoot a concert film, which eventually earned him a Grammy nomination for Yes: 9012 Live (1985). Following this achievement, Soderbergh filmed Sex, Lies, and Videotape (1989), a film that earned him the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or Award, the Independent Spirit Award for Best Director, and an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay. In 2000, Soderbergh directed two major motion pictures that are now his most successful films to date: Erin Brockovich (2000) and Traffic (2000). These films were both nominated for Best Picture at the 2001 Academy Awards and gave him the first twin director Oscar nomination in almost 60 years and the first ever win.
