While at first the Cinéastes team was more interested in capturing on film the titans of Hollywood, attention was also given to the New American Cinema. The Cassavetes episode was shot in two parts, over three years. The first part, shot in 1965, catches Cassavetes as he is editing Faces, and he recounts his unhappy experiences trying to work in Hollywood. The second part, filmed in Paris in 1968, reveals a more focused Cassavetes, as the success of Faces has shown him the direction in which he wants to continue.
