Jim McBride - David Holzmans Diary/My Girlfriends Wedding
  • Description

    Shot in 1967, David Holzman's Diary is a milestone in contemporary film history. Brilliantly conceived and executed, it manages to simultaneously be very much of its time and very many years ahead of its time.

    The film tells the story of David Holzman, a young man infatuated with film and filmmaking. Newly unemployed and beset with doubts and worries, Holzman thinks that filming his everyday existence will 'bring life into focus'. Staged to seem like a documentary of a real person's life, Holzman's filming of his life starts to take over his life.

    Arguably the first 'mockumentary', it has been little seen but hugely influential on filmmakers over the years. The film is also enormously prescient about our current times, when seemingly everyone records everything to do with their lives for the camera.

    Selected for preservation by the US National Film Registry, this is the first time this classic of American cinema has been released on DVD.

    As a very special bonus extra, this Second Run release also includes director Jim McBride's personal 1969 documentary My Girlfriend's Wedding, where his camera turns on his 'liberated' English girlfriend and her candid conversations about her life and her reasons for marrying another man.

    Warning: sections of this film contain strobe light effects.
