CASTING BY combines over 230 interviews, extensive archival footage, animated stills and documents to tell the untold tale of the Hollywood casting director. The film had its international premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, its US premiere at the New York Film Festival, and was acquired by HBO Documentary Films. The film is a celebration of the casting profession, highlighting its previously unsung role in film history while also serving as an elegy to the lost era of New Hollywood. It focuses on casting pioneer Marion Dougherty, an iconoclast whose exquisite taste, tenacity and gut instincts brought a new kind of actor to the screen that would mark the end of the old studio system and help to usher in this revolutionary new period. “The film features what is arguably the greatest assemblage of talking-head star power in any documentary ever made.” – Backstage
