JOAN RIVERS: A PIECE OF WORK - Game Changers

Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

Game Changers: Stories of remarkable individuals and their impact on our world.

A pioneer who paved the way for female comics, the outrageous Joan Rivers opens up her life with all of its many ups and downs in what Roger Ebert called, "one of the most truthful documentaries about show business I've seen." Following a year in the life of the famous comic, filmmakers Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg capture Rivers at her most hilarious and her most vulnerable, as she struggles to book work and strives to remain relevant in the increasingly competitive and cutthroat world of comedy. Covering her career and giving her the spotlight she deserved, A Piece of Work is warm, laugh-out-loud funny and surprisingly touching. http://ow.ly/oUxS30dmM9w
