In anticipation of the UCLA Center for Art of Performance production of Robert Wilson’s Letter to a Man, the Hammer screens this candid look at the visionary mind behind modern classics such as Einstein on the Beach and Deafman Glance. This documentary on the life and work of theater provocateur Robert Wilson explores the powerful creative forces that turned a shy Texas boy into a fearless artist and a pioneer of modern theater. (2006, dir. Katharina Otto-Bernstein, 109 min.)
