Iconic writer, director, actor, comedian, and musician Woody Allen allows his life and creative process to be documented on-camera for the first time. With this unprecedented access, Emmy-winning, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Robert B. Weide followed the notoriously private film legend over a year and a half to create the ultimate film biography. Beginning with Allen's childhood, "Woody Allen: A Documentary" chronicles the trajectory and longevity of Allen's career - from teen writer to TV scribe, from standup comedian to award-winning writer-director averaging one film per year for more than 40 years. Weide travelled with Allen from the London set of You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger to the Cannes premiere of Midnight in Paris. He also filmed Allen at home, in the editing room and in his boyhood neighborhood in Brooklyn. The footage includes interviews with Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Penelope Cruz, John Cusack, Larry David, Mariel Hemingway, Scarlett Johansson and many others.
