Altitude has acquired “The Capote Tapes,” a feature documentary that includes never-before-heard interviews with Truman Capote.
The film will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Director Ebs Burnough had unprecedented access to taped interviews with Capote made as part of an oral biography of the writer by George Plimpton, co-founder of The Paris Review.
Using the tapes, animation, and new on-camera interviews with people who knew him, the film explores the impact of Capote’s explosive unfinished novel “Answered Prayers.”
