This documentary honors late comedian Richard Pryor, covering his evolution from benign stand-up to controversial superstar. After the screening, director Marina Zenovich (Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired) will discuss the provocative figure’s legacy with similarly raw actor-comedian Tracy Morgan, former Daily Show correspondent Wyatt Cenac, and crime-fiction novelist Walter Mosley (who won a Grammy in 2001 for his liner notes on a Richard Pryor box set). Part of Tribeca Film Festival's discussion series, Tribeca Talks. Go to tribecafilm.com/festivals/events for details.
