Remembering Gene Wilder

Kino Lorber, distributor of international, documentary, indie, and classic films based in NYC, invites you to a theatrical release of Remembering Gene Wilder, which opens April 12 at Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, before expanding to select theaters.

This loving tribute to Gene Wilder celebrates his life and legacy with clips from his classic films like The Producers and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, narration from his audiobook memoir, and interviews with Mel Brooks, Alan Alda, and Carol Kane.



In select theaters starting Friday, March 15: kinolorber.com/film/remembering-gene-wilder

“I love this film! It’s a warm and wonderful tribute to my dear friend, Gene. Don’t miss it!” – Mel Brooks

“An upbeat tribute to a singular movie star, and a worthy reminder of how much he’s missed.” – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times

“An affectionate look at the life and work of the comic actor… Pictures from Wilder’s youth and home video round out a portrait of a man whom everyone describes as gentle, innocent, kind, more or less saintly – and, of course, absolutely hilarious.” – Alissa Wilkinson, The New York Times

Remembering Gene Wilder is also available with educational and institutional screening and streaming rights, and for community screenings. For more information about how to purchase a license or host a screening, visit kinolorberedu.com/film/remembering-gene-wilder.

This loving tribute to Gene Wilder celebrates his life and legacy as the comic genius behind an extraordinary string of film roles, from his first collaboration with Mel Brooks in The Producers, to the enigmatic title role in the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, to his inspired on-screen partnership with Richard Pryor in movies like Silver Streak. It is illustrated by a bevy of touching and hilarious clips and outtakes, never-before-seen home movies, narration from Wilder’s audiobook memoir, and interviews with a roster of brilliant friends and collaborators like Mel Brooks, Alan Alda, and Carol Kane. Remembering Gene Wilder shines a light on an essential performer, writer, director, and all-around mensch.
