'Entourage' star Adrian Grenier to show documentary at MU

Wednesday, April 10, 2013 | 1:49 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Adrian Grenier, known as Vincent Chase by fans of the HBO series "Entourage," will screen his documentary “Teenage Paparazzo” at 6:30 p.m Thursday at Jesse Hall.

The event will also feature a Q-and-A session with Grenier and a reception following the film.

“Teenage Paparazzo” follows Austin Visschedyk, a 14-year-old celebrity photographer, and documents the evolution of his relationship with Grenier. 

According to a synopsis from the film’s website, Grenier films the paparazzi to examine celebrity obsession and the relationship between celebrities, paparazzi and the public.

The film was inspired by Grenier’s encounter with Visschedyk during a night out.

Other celebrities, including Paris Hilton and Mario Lopez, recount similar encounters with Visschedyk. Alec Baldwin, Whoopi Goldberg and Matt Damon, among others, make appearances to discuss media exposure.

“Teenage Paparazzo” appeared at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and other festivals.

The event is being sponsored by the MSA/GPC Speakers Committee. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for the public.

Supervising editor is Richard Webner.
