UPDATE, Spring 2015:

Filming ​over the winter ​has taken the filmmakers from New York to Pennsylvania, ​to ​San Francisco and Berkeley, California, where Pauline Kael ​was raised and educated; then to Los Angeles, and Great Barrington, Massachusetts, where she lived for the last 25 years of her life. Over 40 interviews have been shot, with writers directors, artists and friends, amongst others.

Shooting continues ​in the spring in the New York metropolitan area.

Work also continues at the Pauline Kael archives, located at the Lilly Library at Indiana University, where the filmmakers have located new photographs and audio material that has not yet been made public.
