A film by Celia Maysles



Just seven years old when father David Maysles (SALESMAN, GREY GARDENS, GIMME SHELTER) died in 1987 from an unexpected stroke, Celia Maysles had no idea her father and his brother Albert were pioneers of verité documentary filmmaking. Determined to uncover the secrets surrounding her background, Celia sets out on a quest to rediscover her father by using his own artistic process: verité filmmaking. In WILD BLUE YONDER, Celia takes us on a daring journey to the past, and to herself, to understand the father she never knew. A story about missing links, legacies lost and found, and the passion of filmmaking, WILD BLUE YONDER takes us deep inside a conflicted family where filmmaking remains the ultimate means to uncovering the truth.
