The Big Bang
With James Toback in person
Dir. James Toback. 1989, 81 mins. With Don Simpson, Elaine Kaufman, Veronica Geng, Darryl Dawkins, Emma Astner. Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? These are just some of the grand questions posed by James Toback, to an unlikely group of subjects, including a basketball star, an ex-mobster, a Holocaust survivor, a boxer, a movie producer, and more. As in Seduced and Abandoned, Toback appears on camera, trying to finance the film. Toback will introduce the film and participate in a discussion following the screening.
