Gaining unprecedented access to the notoriously private film legend, Emmy Award-winner Robert Weide delves into Woody Allen’s life and creative process, from his childhood and early career through to his most recent film Midnight in Paris, in this new, two-part documentary. Exploring the ultimate “independent filmmaker’s” writing habits, casting, directing and relationship with his actors, Weide traveled with Allen from the London set of his upcoming film You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger to Allen's home, the editing room and his childhood haunts in the Midwood section of Brooklyn.
