The documentary Clerk., about the life and career of indie film icon and raconteur Kevin Smith, will be available through digital retailers beginning Nov. 23 from 1091 Pictures.
Directed by Malcolm Ingram, the film features new interviews with friends, family, filmmaking peers, and icons of the film, comedy and comic book worlds, including Scott Mosier, Jason Mewes, Stan Lee, Justin Long, Penn Jillette, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Smith himself.
After growing up in New Jersey, Smith gained a passion for filmmaking and self-funded his debut feature film, Clerks, which was released in 1994. This opened the door to a career in the pop culture entertainment space, with subsequent directorial efforts such as Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, stints writing for popular comic book characters, and frequent speaking engagements at venues such as Comic-Con and his own podcast.
