The first documentary about author Tom Wolfe will be shown during September as part of the Sun Valley Film Festival’s monthly film screenings.

“Radical Wolfe” will be shown at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21, at The Argyros Center for the Performing Arts in Ketchum.

Wolfe, a satirist and journalist authored “The Bonfire of the Vanities,” a satirical piece about a Wall Street millionaire whose life is destroyed when his mistress strikes a young man in the Bronx. His “The Right Stuff” tells the story of the Apollo astronauts, and “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test,” recounts how  Ken Kesey and his psychedelic enthusiasts traveled across the country in a colorfully painted school bus.

Wolfe started out a beat reporter at the Washington Post and pioneered the New Journalism movement, reshaping how American stories are told.

“Radical Wolfe,” a film by Richard Dewey, is based on a Vanity Fair article by Michael Lewis. It features interviews with those who knew Wolfe best, including Sun Valley’s ann Wenner, founder of “Rolling Stone” magazine; Gay Talese, Christopher Buckley, Niall Ferguson and Alexandra Wolfe.

Tickets are $20, available at
