SXSW 2017: Watch This Exclusive Clip From Doc THE UNTOLD TALES OF ARMISTEAD MAUPIN

The new documentary from To Be Takei director Jennifer M. Kroot, The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin, will have its World Premiere at SXSW this year. ScreenAnarchy is pleased to offer you this exclusive clip as an appetizer.

In the clip Laura Linney, who starred in the television adaptation of his Tales of the City series, and Sir Ian McKellen speak fondly of their friend, both a literary and LGBTQ icon, not just to people of all walks in the Bay Area but from all over the World. 

THE UNTOLD TALES OF ARMISTEAD MAUPIN examines the life and work of one of the world's most beloved storytellers, following his evolution from a conservative son of the Old South into a gay rights pioneer whose novels have inspired millions to claim their own truth. Jennifer Kroot's documentary about the creator of TALES OF THE CITY moves nimbly between playful and poignant and laugh-out-loud funny. With help from his friends (including Neil Gaiman, Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis, Sir Ian McKellen and Amy Tan) Maupin offers a disarmingly frank look at the journey that took him from the jungles of Vietnam to the bathhouses of 70's San Francisco to the front line of the American culture war.
