A FULL METAL JACKET DIARY

Cinequest proudly honors actor and filmmaker Matthew Modine (The Dark Knight Rises, Jobs) with the Maverick Innovator Award and presents this intimate look at his new "appumentary" Full Metal Jacket Diary. Based on his award-winning limited-edition book, Modine's diary chronicles the making of Stanley Kubrick's Vietnam War masterpiece Full Metal Jacket--becoming an entirely reimagined, interactive audiovisual experience, and a stunning journey into new storytelling territory. Through this lively presentation and conversation with Matthew Modine, fans will revel in a celebration of one of cinema's greatest directors. Like Kubrick, Modine has embraced new technologies to craft an awe-inspiring new way of looking at the movie experience in a fresh and adventurous way.

"When I first set out to make my book, the goal was to create something that Stanley would have been proud of and wanted to own. The goal with this app has been no different," said Modine. "If Stanley were alive today, I think he would love the iPad. He was always interested in the latest technologies and in many ways, he was ahead of his time... This app will give a new audience and a new generation access to my diary and photographs in ways I never imagined possible."
