Being Mary Tyler Moore

Tuesday, April 18, 2023

With unprecedented access to the Mary Tyler Moore Estate, friends, family, and colleagues, filmmaker James Adolphus constructs an intimate mosaic of Mary’s sixty-year career in show business. The film reveals a complex icon, weaving Mary’s narrative with an examination of the importance of her on-screen roles, her non-traditional influence as a powerful executive, her humanitarianism, and the indelible mark she left on feminism.

The screening will be followed by an on-stage conversation with filmmaker James Adolphus, editor Mariah Rehmet and Mary Tyler Moore’s husband, Dr. Robert Levine, guest moderated by filmmaker Lacey Schwartz Delgado.

After the conversation, join us at the nearby 9 Jones lounge, with DOC NYC-themed drink specials.
