    • Synopsis
    • THE UNTOLD TALES OF ARMISTEAD MAUPIN examines the life and work of one of
      the world's most beloved storytellers, following his evolution from a conservative son
      of the Old South into a gay rights pioneer whose novels have inspired millions to claim
      their own truth. Jennifer Kroot's documentary about the creator of TALES OF THE CITY
      moves nimbly between playful and poignant and laugh-out-loud funny. With help from
      his friends (including Neil Gaiman, Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis, Sir Ian McKellen and
      Amy Tan) Maupin offers a disarmingly frank look at the journey that took him from the
      jungles of Vietnam to the bathhouses of 70's San Francisco to the front line of the
      American culture war.
