The Venice Film Festival this year isn't just about debuting new films from acclaimed directors, but also appreciating the work of auteurs who have left us. And that's where "Altman" comes in.

The documentary comes from filmmaker Ron Mann, and it will debut in the Venice Classics section of the fest. The movie will cover the life and career of Robert Altman with insight from folks like Paul Thomas Anderson, Bruce Willis, Julianne Moore, Robin Williams and more. Here's the synopsis: Ron Mann's new documentary "ALTMAN" is an in-depth look at the life and times of filmmaker Robert Altman (M*A*S*H, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Nashville, The Player, Gosford Park, and many more.) While refusing to bow down to Hollywood's conventions, or its executives, Altman's unique style of filmmaking won him friends and enemies, earned him world-wide praise and occasionally scathing criticism, and proved that it IS possible to make truly independent films.

"Altman" will be released by Films We Like in Canada and Abramorama in the U.S. Watch below.
