The Windmill Movie

WHAT IF SOMEONE WROTE YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY?

200 hours of footage, dusty boxes of film, a broken editing computer: these were the pieces of filmmaker Richard P. Rogers’ daring attempt to make his own autobiography. He died in 2001, leaving behind a lifetime of filmed memories, until his student and protégé, Alexander Olch began making a movie out of the pieces.

Writing in his teacher’s voice, working with with Wallace Shawn, Bob Balaban, and Richard’s wife – acclaimed photographer Susan Meiselas – Olch steps into his mentor’s shoes and his past – to make a film that was impossible to make. An autobiography, that isn’t. A documentary which is fiction. A lifetime of questions, finally answered.
