AFI Movie Club: A Tribute to Kirby Dick
Today’s Movie Club pick is a tribute to an award-winning documentarian!
Kirby Dick (AFI Conservatory Class of 1983) is a two-time Academy Award® nominated and Emmy® award-winning investigative filmmaker behind some of the most groundbreaking documentaries today with his creative partner Amy Ziering.
With the release earlier this year of his latest documentary, ON THE RECORD, Dick presented the haunting story of music executive Drew Dixon as she struggles with her decision to be the first woman of color to come forward within the #MeToo movement. Past films of Dick’s include THE HUNTING GROUND, THE INVISIBLE WAR, BLEEDING EDGE, THIS FILM IS NOT YET RATED, SICK and OUTRAGE. Kirby Dick will discuss his documentary career with Washington Post movie critic Ann Hornaday today at 5:00 p.m. PDT at AFI FEST presented by Audi.
