Fog City Mavericks: The Filmmakers of San Francisco

While L.A. has been the undisputed capital of studio filmmaking in America since the early 20th century, San Francisco has become home to a different breed of filmmaker - artists who carefully guard their creative vision, even while working in the highest echelons of the commercial movie business. This documentary pays homage to those filmmakers who treasure their independence and remain loyal to the 'City by the Bay', including directors, actors, animators, producers and technical crew. Amongst those interviewed are Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, Clint Eastwood, Brad Bird, Walter Murch, Michael Douglas, Sofia Coppola, Robin Williams and many more.
