The Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles will celebrate the film and television work of director R.J. Cutler by presenting "R.J. Cutler on Film & Television" - which will include both retrospective screenings of select works, and an advance screening of his upcoming film "The September Issue." The retrospective will launch Wednesday, August 5 with a screening of "Issue," a behind-the-scenes look at legendary fashion editor Anna Wintour and the inner workings Vogue magazine. The screening will be followed by a conversation with the filmmaker.

Retrospective screenings will be featured daily starting Thursday, August 6 through Sunday, August 9, and will include episodes of television series including "American High," "30 Days," and "Bound for Glory," in addition to theatrical and television documentaries, including the animated "Shay's Rebellion" and the world premiere screening of "Coach K," Cutler's portrait of legendary Duke University basketball coach Mike Krzysewski.

"This is a particular honor, as the Paley Center has served as such a valuable resource for me over the years" noted Cutler, in a statement. "It was at New York's Paley Center, in fact, back in 1992 (when it was called The Museum of Television & Radio) that I first discovered the classic Drew Associates documentary, Crisis, the story of Jack and Bobby Kennedy's showdown with then-Governor George Wallace over Wallace's refusal to allow African-American students to register at the University of Alabama. I remember sitting in the viewing booth, watching this 1963 film with amazement, moved to tears. That film became my inspiration for making a movie about the 1992 presidential election, indeed for my entire filmmaking career. Without the exhaustive resource of the Paley Center, it's a film I might never have seen."
