51Fest: Kathy Griffin: A Hell of a Story
Thursday, July 18, 2019 7:30 pm
Event hosted by: 51Fest
New York Premiere. Award-winning comedian, actress, and author Kathy Griffin laughs in the face of, wellâ€¦ everything, including controversy. But she faced her greatest storm by far in 2017 when an infamous photo of Griffin holding a mask with President Trumpâ€™s likeness went viral on a global scale. Within days, Griffin was fired, abandoned by friends, and soon became the subject of two federal investigations, ultimately having to defend herself under oath. Unbowed, Griffin created a new stand-up act, captured in this new docu-comedy, out of her life-rattling experience as a First Amendment warrior. If you think this is only the story of a D-List celebrity, think again: Griffin defiantly (and hilariously) represents all Americans in defending her right to free speech.
106 minutes. Directed by Troy Miller. A Brainstorm Media release in partnership with Fathom.
Post-screening conversation with Kathy Griffin and Tina Brown
