His novel Answered Prayers was meant to be Truman Capote’s greatest masterpiece, an epic portrait of NYC’s glittering jet-set society. Instead, it sparked his downfall.

 Through never before heard audio archive and interviews with Capote’s friends and enemies, this intimate documentary reveals the rise and fall of America’s most iconic gay writer. “As a black gay man who grew up in Northern Florida, I was always taught to remember the people on whose shoulders I stood — the people who made life a little easier for me,” first-time director Ebs Burnough, told Variety. “My hope is that this film demonstrates that gay, straight, black, white, we all stand on his shoulders.”
