Chicago’s Dark Knight Gala July 17th, 2008

YouTube user Direc­to­rian has posted a video of The Dark Knight gala which took place in Chicago. Whilst the gala fea­tured a screen­ing of the movie, this video only shows us the intro­duc­tion with the stars along with the Vision­ary Award 2008 — which went to Christo­pher Nolan.

In his accep­tance speech Nolan explains why he chose to shoot in Chicago and a lit­tle bit about his expe­ri­ences with shoot­ing in the IMAX for­mat, before thank­ing the WB and of course his mom.
