Before And After Dinner is an exploration of the life and work of André Gregory, ground-breaking director, actor, writer, artist, and raconteur, filmed by award-winning filmmaker Cindy Kleine, his wife. Through her close-up lens, Cindy introduces us to this cultural icon and master storyteller in a film woven with unexpected twists and turns. Before And After Dinner touches on universal questions: where does art come from? What experiences ultimately shape the life, the preoccupations, and the work of an artist? And who is that artist, beyond his public persona?
