“Rudy! A Documusical” is a documentary that goes beyond well-known headlines to explore the psyche and circumstances of a man in free-fall. Mixing traditional interviews and archival footage with hyper-stylized theatrical scenes from a Rudy Giuliani musical, Jed Rothstein’s documentary finds new ways to present recent history that encourage viewers to look at this person’s life and legacy through different lenses. A holistic profile turned cinematic experiment, “Rudy! A Documusical” promises that no matter how well you think you know this man or his story, there’s always more under the surface.
A project done for director Jed Rothstein and AppleTV.
