Milwaukee-based filmmaker Chris Smith’s new documentary will premiere on Netflix on Nov. 17.
The new film is about the making of the Andy Kaufman biopic “Man in the Moon” and actor Jim Carrey’s transformation into the volcanic character.
The full title is “Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring A Very Special Contractually Obligated Appearance by Tony Clifton.”
“Jim & Andy” was created from hundreds of hours of unused footage from the 1999 film “Man In The Moon,” directed by Milos Forman. It was edited by Smith’s longtime collaborator and area native Barry Poltermann.
