American Masters to Unmask Philip Roth

February 21, 2013

On Friday, March 29, PBS’s American Masters will explore the life and career of Philip Roth, often referred to as one of the greatest American writers living today. Reclusive and diffident, Roth grants very few interviews, but for this series, he has allowed a journalist to spend 10 days interviewing him on camera. The result is Philip Roth: Unmasked, a 90-minute documentary that features Roth freely discussing very intimate aspects of his life and art as he has never done before. The film has its world theatrical premiere March 13-19 for one week only at Film Forum in New York City and premieres nationally Friday, March 29, on PBS (check local listings) in honor of Roth’s 80th birthday.
