CREATING A CHARACTER: THE MONI YAKIM LEGACY

Director:
Rauzar Alexander

World Premiere:
DOC NYC 2019

About:
A legendary Juilliard acting teacher gets his time in the spotlight.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
What do Jessica Chastain, Viola Davis, Patti LuPone, and Alex Sharp have in common? They are but a few of the extraordinary actors who have studied under Moni Yakim at Juilliard, America’s greatest performing arts school. With interviews with Laura Linney, Anthony Mackie, and Kevin Kline, this compelling portrait of the master teacher – the sole remaining founder of the school’s legendary Drama Division – takes us inside the drama classes where Moni and his wife Mina pour their love and passion into preparing the next generation of actors for the spotlight.
