Duplass bros., Wally Pfister joining at Oct. 16 event
Loyola Marymount University will fete docu multihyphenate Frederick Wiseman with a lifetime achievement kudo at its Film Outside the Frame fest.
An addition to Wiseman, brothers Mark and Jay Duplass (“Cyrus”) will receive a breakthrough in filmmaking kudo and Wally Pfister (“Inception”) will be honored for cinematography at the Oct. 16 ceremony on Paramount’s lot.
“Fred’s intellectual rigor and go-it-alone business acumen have allowed him the flexibility to continue making important, influential work for nearly five decades,” said Stephen Ujlaki, dean of LMU’s School of Film and Television.
The kudo ceremony will conclude a week of events including an unspooling of Wiseman’s “La Danse — La Ballet de l’Opera de Paris” and a lecture on visual literacy led by Wiseman at LMU’s Mayer Theater.
