Gary Leva’s feature documentary explores the rich cultural heritage of cinema in the San
Francisco Bay area. Through interviews with such filmmakers as George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola, Philip Kaufman, Saul Zaentz, Clint Eastwood, John Lasseter and many others, Fog City Mavericks uncovers the independent spirit and unique vision that characterizes this extraordinary collection of cinema pioneers.
The film also examines how the DNA of San Francisco affects – and reflects – the lives and work of its artists, mirroring the culture of individuality and innovation that makes San Francisco a unique creative community.
Fog City Mavericks had its world premiere at the 50th San Francisco International Film Festival and can now be seen on the Starz Network or on DVD from Anchor Bay.
