Q&A with directors Judd Apatow & Mike Bonfiglio and film subject Kelly Carlin following the 7:30pm screening on Tuesday, May 17.

GEORGE CARLIN’S AMERICAN DREAM chronicles the life and work of legendary comedian George Carlin. Dubbed the “dean of counterculture comedians,” Carlin’s career spanned half a century during which he headlined 14 HBO comedy specials and appeared on “The Tonight Show” over 130 times, constantly evolving with the times and staying sharply resonant up until his death in 2008 and beyond. Carlin’s ability to zoom in on societal ills has proven eerily prophetic and much of his work resonates today with alarming (and still hilarious) clarity. The documentary examines a cultural chameleon who is remembered as one of the most influential stand-up comics of all time.

Screening as part of the Spring 2022 season of Pure Nonfiction. Tickets for Pure Nonfiction screenings are $19 for the general public and $16 for IFC Center Members. A Season Pass, good for all Spring 2022 films (Apr 5 – May 24) is available at $145 ($105 IFC Center members).
