Make Me Famous, having its Canadian premiere at Toronto’s Hot Docs Cinema Jan. 20 through Feb. 1, is an investigation into the life and apparent death of Detroit-born Edward Brezinski, a charismatic Lower East Side painter on the fringe of success, who thwarted his career with antics that roiled NYC’s art elite.
Described as a madcap romp, the film provides a unique snapshot of the 1980s art explosion while focusing on the truth of Brezinski’s mysterious death in the Cote d’Azur. It was filmed in NYC, Detroit, San Francisco, Ireland, Berlin and France. Make Me Famous has screened worldwide on the festival circuit, including NY, LA, and Ireland, Poland, Australia and South Korea but Toronto is the first stop in a World Theatrical run
