In a never-before-seen interview filmed a few years before his death, Sidney Lumet guides us through his life and work. Powerfully dramatic and wildly entertaining films such as Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, 12 Angry Men, and Network, are just part of the canon of one of the most socially conscious directors in the history of cinema. Peabody and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Nancy Buirski (Afternoon of a Faun, The Loving Story) presents an intimate portrait of Lumet. With his typical candor, humor and grace, he reveals what mattered to him as an artist and a human being.
