This loving tribute to Gene Wilder celebrates his life and legacy as the comic genius behind an extraordinary string of film roles, from his first collaboration with Mel Brooks in The Producers, to the enigmatic title role in the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, to his inspired on-screen partnership with Richard Pryor in movies like Silver Streak. It is illustrated by a bevy of touching and hilarious clips and outtakes, never-before-seen home movies, narration from Wilder’s audiobook memoir, and interviews with a roster of brilliant friends and collaborators like Mel Brooks, Alan Alda, and Carol Kane. Remembering Gene Wilder shines a light on an essential performer, writer, director, and all-around mensch.

"An upbeat tribute to a singular movie star, and a worthy reminder of how much he’s missed."

"An affectionate look at the life and work of the comic actor."

“Instantaneously funny… well and warmly crafted. It's hard to watch him without feeling a kind of primal joy.”

“If you need a feel-good break, Ron Frank’s documentary Remembering Gene Wilder will do it.”

“Reminds fans that Wilder was a singular talent.”

“A thoroughly researched documentary about a man to whom millions worldwide owe smiles."

“This adoring documentary offers a welcome reminder that those emotionally unpredictable but essentially decent souls Wilder often played got their authenticity from being, at heart, a lot like him."
