I saw the film when it was shown at OCON.

Although it was not produced by an Objectivist, it was done with the assistance and cooperation of ARI. There are interviews with reliable Objectivist spokesmen including John Allison, Mike Berliner, Andy Bernstein, Harry Binswanger, Yaron Brook, Northrup Buechner, Amy Peikoff, and Richard Ralston who get plenty of screen time. Yes, they also show Jennifer Burns and Anne Heller -- when they appeared on the screen at OCON, they were booed -- but their comments primarily concern Ayn Rand's fame and influence.

All in all, it's not bad. I gave it an 8.

So it is not out yet? Do you think they'll show it at the NYOS conference next month? That'd be cool, as I have made plans to go :-)

I saw it Saturday at the Free Minds Film Festival showing at U. of Colorado, Colorado Springs. A rather enjoyable documentary. It was positive and optimistic in describing Objectivisms (albeit slowly) growing influence on the culture.
