In 1969, the masterpiece MIDNIGHT COWBOY shocked and enraptured audiences with its honest, gritty portrayal of New York City hustlers, breaking barriers as the only X-rated film to ever win the Academy Award® for Best Picture. Director Nancy Buirski (THE LOVING STORY, HIFF 2011) excavates the lives of its creators, including the brilliantly talented actors Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman, blacklisted screenwriting legend Waldo Salt, and fearless director John Schlesinger. Elegantly combining extensive archival material with compelling new interviews, DESPERATE SOULS, DARK CITY illuminates how one film captured the essence of a time and a place, reflecting a rapidly changing society with striking clarity.

Scheduled to attend: Director Nancy Buirski, Film Subject Bob Balaban
