Mann, Pacino And De Niro Present HEAT at the Academy with Chris Nolan

ONLY AT THE ACADEMY:  MICHAEL MANN, AL PACINO AND ROBERT DE NIRO TOGETHER FOR “HEAT”

Director Christopher Nolan to Moderate Q&A

LOS ANGELES, CA – The Academy celebrates Michael Mann’s 1995 classic, “Heat,” on the big screen onWednesday, September 7, at 7:00 p.m. at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills with a new 4K DCP restoration.  Following the screening, Oscar® winners Pacino and De Niro, four-time Oscar nominee Mann and other cast and crew will reunite in a conversation moderated by Oscar nominee Christopher Nolan.

The crew of a fierce, professional thief (De Niro) and an obsessively driven LAPD detective (Pacino) are locked in deadly opposition as they vector towards each other.

Taking inspiration from his friend, Chicago Detective Charlie Adamson – who killed Neil McCauley in a shoot-out in 1963 – Mann built a twilight vision of Los Angeles.  With its range of complex characters, epic scale action and dazzling use of the city, “Heat” is as incendiary as it was 20 years ago.

“Hollywood executives can rattle off the rules for getting a movie approved by Chinese censors: no sex (too unseemly); no ghosts (too spiritual). Among 10 prohibited plot elements are “disrupts the social order” and “jeopardizes social morality.” Time travel is frowned upon because of its premise that individuals can change history. U.S. filmmakers sometimes anticipate Chinese censors and alter movies before their release. The Oscar-winning alien-invasion drama “Arrival” was edited to make a Chinese general appear less antagonistic before the film’s debut in China this year. For “Passengers,” the space adventure starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, a scene showing Mr. Pratt’s bare backside was removed, and a scene of Mr. Pratt chatting in Mandarin with a robot bartender was added.”

The race stuff blew up first. The second night we aired was the first time I met my boyfriend; we were on a blind date. I had been metabolizing the criticism all week, and I made a really, really dumb joke that I’m perfectly fine to repeat now ’cause I was fuckin’ 25. I said, ‘No one would be calling me a racist if they knew how badly I wanted to fuck Drake.’ He said, ‘Don’t say that in public; that’s not going to help you.’ I just didn’t get it. I was like, ‘I have the three most annoying white friends, and I’m making a TV show about it.'”
