The Bandit (Jesse Moss | USA | 82 min.)
The Bandit is a film about 70s superstar Burt Reynolds, his best friend, roommate and stunt-double Hal Needham, and the making of their unlikely smash-hit Smokey & The Bandit. The film tells the action-packed story of the making of Smokey, while tracing the vivid personal journeys of Reynolds and Needham from obscurity to stardom and highlighting one of the most extraordinary relationships in Hollywood history. Featuring new interviews with Reynolds, rare archive material, including footage from Reynolds' personal archive, as well as candid interviews with the late Hal Needham, the documentary tells an exhilarating and moving story about loyalty, friendship and creative risk.

Dante DeFelice is all alone with you in the green-tinted shadows of his treehouse. He is covered in dust and wet grass. The wood of his guitar is worn and cracked. Saltwater stains speckle its fading strap. He sings. His voice is hoarse and difficult to understand. Old photographs, wrinkled balloons, and bloody effigies leap from his tongue in wavering streams, soft before they are sharp. An unexpected joke catches you off-guard. You are both laughing and, for a moment, you are both young. Dante DeFelice is a Hudson Valley singer-songwriter who lost his heart in some spiral-bound notebook and cassette recorder when he was 14. He is still searching for it.
