'Life Itself' Screens at the Fall 2018 KCET Cinema Series
Following a screening of “Life Itself”, writer/director Dan Fogelman attended a Q&A hosted by Cinema Series host Pete Hammond.

Starring Oscar Issac ("Inside Llewyn Davis"), Olivia Wilde ("Vinyl"), Mandy Patinkin ("Homeland"), Olivia Cooke ("Bates Motel"), Laia Costa ("Victoria"), Annette Bening ("Coastal Disturbances") and Antonio Banderas ("The Mambo King").
Dan Fogelman is the creator and executive producer of the acclaimed NBC drama "This Is Us," which after two seasons has been nominated for 10 Emmys® and a Golden Globe® for Best Drama. His feature directorial debut, "Danny Collins," starred Al Pacino in a Golden Globe-nominated performance.
Fogelman’s first feature film was the Pixar film "Cars". His other animated screenplays include "Bolt" and "Tangled." His live-action films include "Crazy, Stupid, Love," starring Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling, and the semi-autobiographical "The Guilt Trip," starring Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen.
Fogelman was the recipient of the 2016 Humanitas Prize for his "This Is Us" pilot script. The award is for film and television writing intended to promote human dignity, meaning and freedom.
