‘A 50 Year Argument’

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Martin Scorsese and his longtime documentary collaborator David Tedeschi, A 50 Year Argument rides the waves of literary, political, and cultural history as charted by the The New York Review of Books, and will premiere at the Sheffield International Documentary Festival. Provocative, idiosyncratic and incendiary, the film weaves rarely-seen archival material, contributor interviews, excerpts from writings by such long-standing contributors as James Baldwin, Gore Vidal, and Joan Didion along with original verité footage filmed in the Review’s West Village offices. Co-produced with the BBC’s award-winning Arena and shaped by Scorsese’s vivid filmmaking, A 50 Year Argument captures the power of ideas in influencing history.
