Filmmaker, Actor Adrian Grenier to Speak and Screen “Teenage Paparazzo” at UNC Asheville
Fri, 09/09/2011 - 4:28pm
Adrian Grenier will host a screening of his documentary film, “Teenage Paparazzo,” and take questions from the audience at UNC Asheville’s Lipinsky Auditorium, on Saturday, Sept. 24. The film begins at 6:30 p.m. with discussion to follow after the film and an art reception with Grenier at approximately 9 p.m.
“Teenage Paparazzo” documents the true story of a relationship between Grenier, the star of the HBO series “Entourage,” and a 14-year-old paparazzo whom Grenier encountered on a night out. Grenier, who had previously directed the documentary “Shot in the Dark,” decided to turn his camera on the paparazzi, to examine why they find fame such a powerful lure. His film also includes interviews with celebrities such as Matt Damon, Eva Longoria, Paris Hilton, Alec Baldwin and Whoopie Goldberg, as well as psychologists, critics and tabloid writers.
Grenier’s appearance is sponsored by Mars Hill College, UNC Asheville’s Psychology Department, Psych Club, the department of Student Activities, the office of Cultural Events & Special Academic Programs, the Arts and Ideas Program and the office of the Provost.
This event is free with seating for the general public limited to 150 and remaining seats reserved for UNC Asheville and Mars Hill College students, faculty and staff.
