SOMETHING'S GONNA LIVE
Ten years in the making, SOMETHING’S GONNA LIVE is an intimate portrait of life, death, friendship and the movies, as recalled by some of Hollywood’s greatest cinema artists.
Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Daniel Raim captures the late life coming together of renowned art directors (and pals) Robert “Bob” Boyle (NORTH BY NORTHWEST, THE BIRDS), Henry “Bummy” Bumstead (TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, THE STING) and Albert Nozaki (THE WAR OF THE WORLDS, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS), storyboard artist Harold Michelson (THE GRADUATE, STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE), as well as master cinematographers Haskell Wexler (WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?, MEDIUM COOL) and Conrad Hall (IN COLD BLOOD, BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID).
From snapshots, sketches, and vintage footage interwoven with interviews and new scenes of these octogenarian artists at work, we get a behind-the-scenes look at movie-making in the golden age of cinema. As we watch iconic scenes of our collective imaginations emerge from their drawings, models, matte paintings, and sets, we hear tales of Mae West, “Hitch,” and DeMille, and experience their longing for the sense of community that made working on these films so great.
Not a nostalgia piece, but an exploration of the artist’s moral obligation to truthfully portray the human condition, SOMETHING’S GONNA LIVE is a deeply engaging and thought-provoking celebration of the human stories behind the glamorous edifice of Hollywood.
