TURN EVERY PAGE – THE ADVENTURES OF ROBERT CARO AND ROBERT GOTTLIEB

California Premiere


CREATE | MIND THE GAP | DOCS

US 2022, 112 min, Director: Lizzie Gottlieb

Fifty years, five books, four thousand eight hundred and eighty-eight pages…and counting. Lizzie Gottlieb’s gripping documentary focuses on the intersecting life’s work of her father, writer and editor Robert Gottlieb, and biographer Robert Caro, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York and the influential multi-volume The Years of Lyndon Johnson. The energetic Gottlieb edited hundreds of books over the course of a career that included tenures as editor-in-chief at Simon and Schuster, Alfred A. Knopf, and The New Yorker. But the magnitude of his collaboration with Caro provides Lizzie Gottlieb with the pretext to document her erudite subjects. Combining compelling first-person accounts with the observations of fellow writers, editors, loved ones, and fans, she demonstrates the enduring significance of these meticulously crafted, voluminous histories to understanding the use and abuse of power in the US in the 20th century and beyond. —Kate MacKay
