B.F. Skinner: The Last Behaviorist

Via Advances in the History of Psychology, I learned today about an upcoming film, The Last Behaviorist, which is "an audio-visual portrait" of Skinner and his theories:
“If I am right about human behavior, I have written the autobiography of a nonperson.”
- B.F. SKINNER, A Matter of Consequences: Part Three of An Autobiography

The Last Behaviorist takes Skinner’s proposition as a conceptual point of departure - it is an audio-visual portrait, examining the biographical history, ideas, words, and representations of a non-person through raw footage of the subject and their environment.
No information is provided on release of the film, but you can sign up to be on their mailing list. As a recovering radical behaviorist, I'll definitely check out this film.
