"Boffo!" and "21 Up America" Bookend 2006 SilverDocs Fest

SilverDocs 2006 will open with the East Coast premiere of Bill Couturie‘s “Boffo! Tinseltown’s Bombs and Blockbusters” on June 13 and will close June 18 with the world premiere of Christopher Quinn‘s “21 Up America,” inspired by the critically acclaimed British series by Michael Apted. “Boffo!” executive produced by Variety‘s Peter Bart and publisher Charlie Koones, was suggested by Bart’s upcoming book How I Learned to Love the Blockbuster and Fear the Bomb and is in celebration of Variety’s 100th Anniversary. The film explores the alchemy of the hit and the razor thin line between success and failure. The full SilverDocs line line up will be announced soon. [Brian Brooks]
