Altman and Trudeau on Tanner '88

Director Robert Altman (M.A.S.H., Nashville) and writer Garry Trudeau (creator of Pulitzer Prize-winning comic strip "Doonesbury") will discuss their work and collaboration on the "Reality-based comedy," a political satire that examined the 1988 presidential race. The discussion will take place after the first of three programs which will present the entire "Tanner 88" series. (See information on "Tanner '88" program on this page.)

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
