Synopsis:

Thursday May 13th at 7:30PM

HUGH HEFNER: PLAYBOY, ACTIVIST AND REBEL (2010, Canada) Directed by Brigitte Berman
If you think you know all there is to know about Hugh Hefner, think again. In this eye-opening documentary, Academy Award–winning producer-director Brigitte Berman makes the case that Hefner's legacy extends well beyond Playboy and the sexual revolution to touch almost every aspect of American society, from the arts to politics to civil rights. Candid interviews with Hefner, his friends and his foes, alike, along with rare archival footage, make this both a personal portrait of an extraordinary life and a fascinating, alternative cultural history of post-WWII America. HDcam, 124 min.
