As a documentarian I happily place my fate and faith in reality. It is my caretaker, the provider of subjects, themes, experiences – all endowed with the power of truth and the romance of discovery. And the closer I adhere to reality the more honest and authentic my tales. After all, the knowledge of the real world is exactly what we need to better understand and therefore possibly to love one another. It’s my way of making the world a better place.
Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Salesman!

DALI’S FANTASTIC DREAM, 6 min. Showing from Sun, July 16th to Sat, July 22nd.
(A rarely seen six-minute film following Salvador Dalì in New York as he creates a portrait of the actress Raquel Welch, in a bikini. We accompany the artist to his room at the St. Regis Hotel, where we witness his exuberant creative process. )
MEET MARLON BRANDO, 29 min. Showing from Sun, July 23rd to Sat, July 29th.
( A close-up of the personality of Marlon Brando. The Maysles follow Brando as he is interviewed about his most recent film Morituri by many television journalists. The actor is witty and playful as he answers, and often objects to, the questions — when he isn’t charming some of the pretty journalists.)
We are thrilled that In Transit will be screening in New York City both Uptown and Downtown!
Join us at the Maysles Documentary Center: 343 Lenox Avenue NY NY 10027
Screenings Daily starting on Friday June 23rd-Thursday June 29th
