Walter Isaacson and Heather Reisman Discuss Leonardo Da Vinci

Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

Leonardo Da Vinci was history’s most creative genius—and now he has a biographer worthy of his talents. In this Canadian premiere, Walter Isaacson, the author of acclaimed bestsellers on Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin, sits down with Indigo CEO Heather Reisman to discuss his ground-breaking new biography of the Italian master. Based on thousands of pages from Leonardo’s astonishing notebooks, Isaacson's well-researched text was the focus of a competitive bidding war and is now being developed into a feature film starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Discover how Da Vinci’s genius was based on skills we can improve in ourselves, such as passionate curiosity, careful observation and imagination.
