Now in its second season on the Independent Film Channel, Errol Morris’s First Person, a highly original nonfiction series, presents in-depth portraits of individuals who exist somewhere on the social spectrum between the famous and the infamous. Working with the Megatron—a further refinement of the Interrotron camera apparatus he invented in order to lock eyes with his interview subjects in such films as Mr. Death and Fast, Cheap & Out of Control—Morris has embarked on a new chapter of his career. The endeavor has already received critical recognition, including landing last year on Time Magazine’s list of top-ten television programs. This evening we are promised a preview of programs to come, including a close encounter with mob lawyer Murray Richman (The Only Truth) and a two-part visit with Rick Rosner, a high-school recidivist who has serially re-enrolled in his senior year (One in a Million Trillion).
Errol Morris has prepared a short video introducing his film.
