Don’t You Forget About Me – Official Teaser – John Hughes Documentary from MattyAustin on YouTube

In 2008, four young filmmakers jumped in a van and set out to find beloved director John Hughes, who all but disappeared from the world nine years earlier.

Along the way, they assembled memories of and praise for the man from stars of his enormous cannon of work (including The Breakfast Club’s Ally Sheedy and Judd Nelson, Pretty in Pink’s Annie Potts and Andrew McCarthy and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’s Alan Ruck and Mia Sara) as well as fellow directors, like Jason Reitman and Kevin Smith, whose own work was influenced by Hughes’.

We’ve been following their journey across the United States for over a year (including the adjustments they’ve had to make following the death of the director last August) on their blog, and today we’re finally able to get our grubby paws on our own copy of Don’t You Forget About Me.


It’s available, for the time being, to residents of Canada and the United States only. You can purchase it on DVD or iTunes. More information here.
