Gene Wilder was a dedicated actor and comedian who appeared in innumerable films until Alzheimers took his life in 2016. To pay homage to the gentle and deep artist while raising Alzheimers awareness, Gene’s wife Linda allowed the filmmakers access to rare home video footage. Also included are interviews with his closest collaborators, like Mel Brooks, Carol Kane, Rain Pryor, and Dick Cavett. (dir. Ron Frank, US, 2023, 92 m)

Now, in Ron Frank’s (When Comedy Went to School) affectionate and touching biographical documentary, the full measure of Wilder’s gifts is on display, not only as a comedic actor but as a writer, director and a mensch.” –Miami Jewish Film Festival
