Filmmaker Nicholas Wrathall on Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia

Gore Vidal was a prominent social critic, novelist, playwright, screenwriter, and essayist. He ran for office, hobnobbed with movie stars and musicians, was blacklisted by the literary establishment, criticized all wars and presidents, and threw great parties. He died nearly 2 years ago on July 31, 2012. The new documentary Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia, is the definitive encapsulation of Gore Vidal’s life. Nicholas Wrathall is the film’s producer, writer, and director.

He spoke recently with Uprising host Sonali Kolhatkar. Watch a video of the interview here:

The film opens at the Nuart in Los Angeles this Friday, and at the Opera Plaza in San Francisco and Shattuck in Berkeley on June 13, a week from tomorrow. Find out more about the film at gorevidaldocumentary.com.
