— P R E V I E W —Synopsis

Mark Wexler’s cinematic blend of biography and autobiography centers on his relationship with his father, legendary cinematographer and filmmaker Haskell Wexler, whose long and illustrious career is a virtual catalogue of 20th century classics. Haskell’s collaborations with such world-class filmmakers as Elia Kazan, Milos Forman, George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola, and Mike Nichols include such works as WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?, AMERICAN GRAFFITI, COMING HOME, BOUND FOR GLORY and ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST. The film features interviews with these artists, along with such luminaries as Jane Fonda, Michael Douglas, Ron Howard and Julia Roberts.

But the true “star” of TELL THEM WHO YOU ARE is Haskell himself, a larger-than-life character who challenges his son’s choices about camera placement, lighting, and storytelling while announcing with complete conviction that he could have done a better job directing most of the films he’s shot. As these two men swap positions on camera and behind it — sometimes shooting one another simultaneously — the film explores the specifics of this particular father/son dynamic, while also revealing more universal truths about how our parents teach us to see the world, and how legacies, both personal and artistic, are created.
