Alex Gibney directs the definitive documentary about Paul Simon’s legendary Grammy Award-winning career.

In the film, Gibney and Simon journey through a dreamlike world, an absorbing portrait of an artist, that transcends both time and space moving freely between present and past, showcasing both his music making in the here-and-now and a unique peek into his career, from Tom & Jerry to Simon & Garfunkel to the triumphs of “Graceland" and "Rhythm of the Saints.”

Rarely seen or heard footage of Paul on his own in England in 1964, outtakes from “Songs of America,” a 16mm documentary from 1969, and early rehearsal videos from Paul’s first days jamming with musicians in Johannesburg are featured in the film. Wynton Marsalis, Lorne Michaels and Paul’s wife, Edie Brickell offer important insights about the man and his music.
