Levinson Directs Polliwood Doco

Barry Levinson has directed a doc about the just-completed Democratic and Republican national conventions that will be released by indie distrib Screen Media Films says Variety.

“Polliwood” features interviews with a host of showbiz names including Anne Hathaway, David Crosby, Alan Cumming and Susan Sarandon, plus several political notables.

The doc blends footage from the floor of both conventions with separate sit-down interviews to provide a snapshot of the landmark 2008 presidential race. The film will hit the festival circuit in 2009.
