AFME Foundation and the Albuquerque Film & Media Experience are proud to present “An Evening with Pierce Brosnan” at the historic KiMo Theatre. The two-time Golden Globe award nominee and recipient of AFME’s 2014 Robert & Sibylle Redford Award will take the stage for an evening of conversation, insight and stories, moderated by world-renowned American film critic and historian Leonard Maltin.
Perhaps best known worldwide as James Bond since he reinvigorated the franchise with Goldeneye (1995), Mr. Brosnan is a critically acclaimed actor, artist and activist. In addition to his varied work in front of the camera, he has always had a passion for the art of filmmaking. His production company, Irish DreamTime, has produced a variety of critically acclaimed movies such as The Matator (2005) to the box office hit The Thomas Crown Affair (1999). Brosnan was born in County Meath, Ireland and moved to London at age 11. Brosnan relocated to Los Angeles in 1982 and immediately landed the role of private investigator Remington Steele on the popular NBC television series of the same name. Since that time, he has become one of the biggest names in entertainment.
Leonard Maltin is one of the most recognizable faces in television. From decades of covering the movie and pop culture beat, he has become a part of popular culture himself—caricatured in a famous South Park episode, cited as a puzzle answer on Wheel of Fortune, and referenced on The Sopranos. This comes on the heels of a long career as critic and historian, beginning with his annual Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide, which has sold more than 7 million copies since its inception. A thirty-year stint on the hit TV show Entertainment Tonight introduced him to a vast new audience, as both critic and interviewer. Forbes.com named him one of America’s Top 10 pundits. He currently appears on ReelzChannel, where his weekly shows Secret’s Out and Maltin on Movies have enjoyed long runs. He also hosted a daily syndicated radio show for twenty years, Leonard Maltin on Video.
