ABOUT HENRY JAGLOM: As an actor, a playwright an an aspiring director, Henry Jaglom studied with both Lee Strasberg and Harold Clurman in New York at The Actors' Studio in the 1960s. His truly extraordinary film-making career began in the editing room when he and Jack Nicholson helped put together Dennis Hopper's 1969 hit Easy Rider. Jaglom's first film as a writer-director, A Safe Place, starred Nicholson, Orson Welles and Tuesday Weld and was wildly acclaimed by Anais Nin, who said "Henry Jaglom is, quite simply, The Magician of American Cinema!" Since then, Jaglom has written five plays and written and directed twenty more films: Tracks (1976); Sitting Ducks (1980); Can She Bake a Cherry Pie? (1983); Always (But Not Forever) (1985); Someone to Love (1987); New Year's Day (1989); Eating (1990); Venice/Venice (1991); Babyfever (1994); Last Summer in the Hamptons (1996); Déjà Vu- A Love Story (1998); Festival in Cannes (2002); Going Shopping (2004); Hollywood Dreams (2006); Irene in Time (2008); Queen of the Lot (2010); Just 45 Minutes from Broadway (2012), based on his hit play of the same name which played at Edgemar Center for the Arts for ten months; The M Word (2014); Ovation (2016); and Train to Zakopané (2018), based on his hit play of the same name that also previously had a year-long run at Edgemar. Together with Howard Zuker, Jaglom won the 1974 Academy Award® for Best Documentary for their presentation with Bert Schneider of Peter Davis' brilliant documentary about the Vietnam War, Hearts and Minds. Also, in 2014, Metropolitan Books (Henry Holt and Company) released to great acclaim the best-selling book by famed film historian Peter Biskind, My Lunches with Orson: Conversations between Henry Jaglom and Orson Welles.

A retrospective devoted to Jaglom's films is planned for 2019 at Spectacle in Brooklyn.
