Join us for this special screening and Q&A with Jon Greenhalgh and former Team Foxcatcher member Paul Widerman.

Jon Greenhalgh's TEAM FOXCATCHER (A Netflix Release), which world premieres this week at the TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL chronicles the paranoid, downward spiral of millionaire John E. DuPont, with never-before-seen home videos shot at Foxcatcher Farms. The film sheds light on the events that led Dupont to host American Olympic wrestling hopefuls including the charismatic Olympic gold medalist and two-time world champion David Schultz.

Schultz became the heart of the program and DuPont’s closest confidant, but on the fringes of this powerful partnership emerged a manic, mentally unstable DuPont, fueled by a disturbing obsession with power, wealth and influence.

TEAM FOXCATCHER director Jon Greenhalgh grew up on Long Island, watching and re-watching Woody Allen movies on VHS, unaware that a career in film was even possible (he remains skeptical to this day).

In the late 1990’s, after a less-than remarkable run at Syracuse University (where he would later return to earn an M.A. from the Newhouse School of Communications), Greenhalgh found himself slinging drinks at a dive bar on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It was here, in the wee-hours of the morning, that Greenhalgh conceived the idea for what would become his first feature-length documentary film, titled THE SMASHING MACHINE. That film, which chronicled troubled MMA superstar Mark Kerr, was ultimately acquired by Sheila Nevins and aired as a part of the HBO: America Undercover series in 2002. Since then, Greenhalgh has notched on-screen credit for writing, producing, and editing, and continues to search for stories rooted in the niche, that have the complex visual and emotional elements necessary to break into the mainstream.

In 2012, Greenhalgh fled the intellectually exhausting confines of New York City for the age-appropriate Hudson Valley, where he currently resides with life-partner Rika Ogawa and their two-year old son, Kenzo.
