- Story Text: It was Hollywood star Jim Carrey's turn to shine in Venice on Tuesday (September 5) as he danced his way down the red carpet for the premiere of his documentary ''Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond - the story of Jim Carrey & Andy Kaufman with a very special, contractually obligated mention of Tony Clifton".
Carrey had fun ahead of the screening at one point sitting in with the photographers and later signing a fans' arm.
Directed by Chris Smith, the film which is about the making of "Man on the Moon" in 1999, features rare behind-the-scenes footage showing how Carrey immersed himself in the roles of Andy Kaufman and Tony Clifton, the character of an obnoxious lounge singer created by the U.S. comedian.
The documentary, which is being screened in the out-of-competition section of the festival, contains footage interspersed with interviews with present-day Carrey, reflecting on what portraying Kaufman meant for him.
