Leg­endary cast­ing direc­tor Bon­nie Tim­mer­mann final­ly goes under the spot­light with a doc­u­men­tary fea­tur­ing nev­er-seen audi­tion footage of all of today’s biggest stars and a refresh­ing take on what a cast­ing direc­tor is, and more gen­er­al­ly what is the essence of an actor and how a film is gen­uine­ly made. From Bruce Willis to Natal­ie Port­man, pass­ing by Liam Nee­son and Sigour­ney Weaver, meet the woman who shaped today’s TV and cin­e­ma and the pio­neer who trans­formed soci­ety by giv­ing minori­ties a shot and young gen­er­a­tions new faces to look up to.
