THE INCOMPARABLE ROSE HARTMAN, Directed by ØTIS MASS, Opens at Laemmle’s Monica Film Center July 7

Run Accompanies Laemmle’s Unique “Art in the Arthouse” Exhibition of Hartman’s Iconic Photos

“The Incomparable Rose Hartman,” Øtis Mass’ acclaimed documentary about NYC’s notorious “Tasmanian Devil of photography” Rose Hartman, will open exclusively at Laemmle’s Monica Film Center, 1332 2nd Street, Santa Monica, on July 7, where the run will be accompanied by an exhibition of Hartman’s iconic pictures, hitting a bull’s-eye for Laemmle’s unique “Art in the Arthouse” initiative. 

Quite literally pushing boundaries with its skinny-as-a-supermodel running time of 71 minutes, the film has already garnered raves from top NYC critics on its way to “The Monicas” and the house’s iconic status among LA moviegoers.

Hartman, 80 as of May, still doesn't let much get in the way of any fashion show or opening she wants to shoot. 

She’s been called a lot of names but irascible today best defines the woman whose sharp eye and sharper elbows have been attacking the New York City social scene for decades. 

In the 70s she lay in wait at Studio 54 for stars like Mick and Bianca Jagger and Andy Warhol. 

Later she pioneered the backstage workings of 7th Ave., making quick fans of Donna Karan and Carolina Herrera. But, as this “PENETRATING” (New York Times), “GORGEOUSLY SHOT, SHARPLY EDITED” (Village Voice) documentary by “BRAVE and TENACIOUS” (MUSÉE) director Øtis Mass dares to ask: does Rose simply work a room, or is she also working to belong?

The Artists Company presents a Massive Original production, “The Incomparable Rose Hartman.” Featuring Valerie & Jean, Patrick McMullan, Anthony Haden-Guest, Phillip Bloch, George Wayne, Donna Karan, Carolina Herrera, Simon Doonan and others, the film was directed by Øtis Mass, produced by Bob Fisher and Øtis Mass, with Sally Antonacchio serving as executive producer and Erik Smollinger and Rose Hartman serving as co-executive producers. 

A world premiere at Austin’s SXSW Film Festival, the film went on to play over a dozen festivals worldwide, including Toronto’s prestigious HotDocs and in competition at DOC NYC, where the Jury mentioned its “original look at of one of NYC’s most unique personalities.” Certified MADE IN NY; 71 min.; not rated; presented in color on DCP. Gravitas Ventures releases the film on VOD, DVD and Blu-Ray on august 29.
