"Life Itself" Debuts in London at Dogwoof Weekender, Continues its Run

LONDON was one of Roger’s favorite cities and he would have been thrilled to know that the Steve James directed documentary about him, "Life Itself," will be debuting there this week as the opening film of the Dogwoof Weekender. 

Dogwoof is a prestigious distributor of independent films celebrating its tenth anniversary as a distributor. Since 2004, it has released over 120 films, including independent films that have won or been nominated for Oscars or BAFTA awards like "The Act of Killing," "Restrepo," And "Blackfish." 

"Life Itself" and five other films being distributed by Dogwoof will be exhibited at the ICA. The Institute of Contemporary Art was founded in 1946 by a group of artists, and continues its support of vibrant artistic exchange in the UK. Dogwoof is throwing itself a birthday bash at the ICA from September 26-28 (called Dogwoof Weekender), and chose to open with what it calls “the highly anticipated” showing of LIFE ITSELF on September 26.

Roger had a love affair with London, stemming from his first visit there in 1966 after studying abroad in Cape Town, South Africa on a Rotary fellowship. His book “THE PERFECT LONDON WALK” is still considered an eccentric masterpiece of a tour guide. Read Katie Engelhart’s review of it at Slate.com here
