Hard Lovin' Woman, the heavy-hitting rock documentary directed by acclaimed actor, comedian and filmmaker Michael Rapaport and produced by UX Entertainment’s Jason Bergh and Sal Masekela, premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival on Friday April 15. The film will soon be available to global audiences on Red Bull TV starting April 23rd.
In this original short, Rapaport focuses his lens on Juliette Lewis and shines a light on the sacrifices the Oscar-nominated actress has made to pursue her first love: music. Hard Lovin’ Woman takes the viewer on an entertaining and deeply intimate journey through Lewis’ raw, sonic world.
A frequent helmer of documentary-style projects, Michael Rapaport has previously shown at Tribeca, first with his 2011 debut feature documentary Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest, which explores the history and living legacy of the influential hip hop group.
Rapaport enjoyed another Tribeca premiere in 2014 with his Emmy Award-winning film When the Garden was Eden for ESPN’s celebrated “30 for 30” series. The piece chronicles the 1970s championship-winning New York Knicks led by Earl Monroe, Walt Frazier, and Willis Reed.
Michael Rapaport is represented by Big Block for commercial work worldwide.
