Cinematical has just received this exclusive poster and two clips for American Prince, a documentary directed by animator/filmmaker Tommy Pallotta, who was a producer on Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly. The film takes a look at Martin Scorsese's 1978 documentary American Boy, which never has had an official release, and which only a few people have seen (generally as a bootleg). Pallotta follows up with the film's subject, Steven Prince, 30 years after Scorsese's film. Prince is probably best known to many of us as the guy who played the gun salesman in Taxi Driver, but apparently both documentaries reveal an extremely colorful life. I can't wait to find out the details.
American Prince will have its world premiere at SXSW this Saturday, March 14, with an encore screening on Tuesday, March 17. Scorsese's American Boy will be shown right before this film, a documentary double-feature you won't want to miss if you're in Austin next week. Check out one clip below (which happens to be the first couple of minutes of the film), and another clip after the jump.
