DECONSTRUCTING WOODY American Masters—Woody Allen: A Documentary Sun 20th and Mon 21st, 9 p.m.; thirteen.org/americanmasters Over the years, American Masters has profiled cinema greats ranging from Alfred Hitchcock to Gene Kelly, and comedy legends including Bob Newhart, Carol Burnett, and Nichols and May. This month, the Emmy Award-winning series shines its spotlight on iconic writer, director, actor, comedian, and musician Woody Allen, who allowed his life and creative process to be documented on-camera for the first time in Woody Allen: A Documentary. Director Robert Weide (HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, Lenny Bruce: Swear to Tell the Truth) followed the notoriously private film legend over a year and a half to create the ultimate film biography. The two-part documentary, premiering this month on THIRTEEN, explores Allen’s writing habits and relationship with his actors, observing him on the London set of You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger and at the Cannes

premiere of Midnight in Paris. It also captures Allen at home, in the editing room, and touring his childhood haunts in the Midwood section of Brooklyn. Larry David, Mariel Hemingway, Diane Keaton, and Martin Scorsese are among the colleagues sharing insights and backstory. Before Allen began his current globetrotting phase (London, Barcelona, Paris, and now Rome), he was widely considered the quintessential New York filmmaker. Annie Hall features Coney Island’s Cyclone rollercoaster, the Thalia cinema, and even the FDR Drive. And who could forget the breathtaking opening montage of Manhattan with its Gershwin-infused flashes of Big Apple landmarks, not to mention the iconic image of Allen and Diane Keaton sitting on a bench in front of the Queensboro Bridge? New York’s premier public television station is proud to bring you this unprecedented look at a true New York legend.

American Masters is made possible by the support of the National Endowment for the Arts and by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Additional funding for American Masters is provided by Rosalind P. Walter, The Blanche & Irving Laurie Foundation, Rolf and Elizabeth Rosenthal, Cheryl and Philip Milstein Family, Jack Rudin, The André and Elizabeth Kertész Foundation, Michael & Helen Schaffer Foundation, and public television viewers. Funding for this program is provided by Miriam and Sam Blatt.
