PELHAM, NY -- On Monday, November 20th at 7:30 p.m. The Picture House Regional Film Center (TPH) will host an advance screening of Voyeur followed by a discussion and Q&A with the directors Myles Kane and Josh Koury. The Westchester exclusive screening at TPH takes place ten days ahead of the film’s U.S. premiere.

Voyeur follows Gay Talese — the 84-year-old giant of modern journalism — as he reports one of the most controversial stories of his career: a portrait of a Colorado motel owner, Gerald Foos. For decades, Foos secretly watched his guests with the aid of specially designed ceiling vents, peering down from an “observation platform” he built in the motel’s attic. He kept detailed journals of his guests’ most private moments — from the mundane to the shocking — but most of all he sought out, spied on, and documented one thing: strangers having sex. Talese’s insatiable curiosity leads him to turn his gaze to a man accustomed to being the watcher, exploring a tangle of ethical questions: What does a journalist owe to his subjects? How can a reporter trust a source who has made a career of deception? Who really is the voyeur?

After the screening TPH critic-in-residence Marshall Fine will moderate a discussion and Q&A with the directors Myles Kane and Josh Koury.  Kane has directed Journey to Planet X, An Immortal Man, and We Will Live Again as well as editing We Are Wizards, Made In India, and Ask the Sexpert. He has produced numerous short films and television programs for The New Yorker and BBC. Koury’s director credits include Journey to Planet X, We Are Wizards, Standing by Yourself, An Immortal Man and We Will Live Again. As a film programmer, Koury’s tenure includes four years at the Hamptons International Film Festival and four seasons as the Director of Programming at the Brooklyn Underground Film Festival. He is currently a faculty member at the Pratt Institute and FIT.
