THE DOG

East Coast Premiere

Based on true events, Sidney Lumet's 1975 classic DOG DAY AFTERNOON tells the infamous story of a bank robbery gone awry. Allison Berg and Frank Keraudren's film, THE DOG, introduces us to the quirky and colorful John Wojtowicz — the real-life inspiration for Al Pacino's character. Combining present-day interviews with archival footage, THE DOG isn't just a look at the incredible story behind the classic film, it's a fascinating snapshot of New York City's LGBT liberation movement of the 1970s. – MC
