Director Philip Kaufman In Person!

Fri, Nov 8, 2019 - Mon, Nov 11, 2019

With a reputation as "the thinking person’s filmmaker," Philip Kaufman has created masterful work in a wide range of genres, including acclaimed big-screen versions of seemingly impossible-to-adapt literary works. The writer-director joins us in person with some of his best-known films including THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS and a special screening of THE RIGHT STUFF at the newly refurbished American Legion Post 43 theater.

Lina Wertmüller's films burst out at the audience in a mad rush of sex, slapstick, political debate and sputtering obscenity, like a raunchy comic opera played out against the terrible history of the 20th century. Join us for two nights of 1970s classics from one of the most distinct voices of world cinema, including SEVEN BEAUTIES, SWEPT AWAY and THE SEDUCTION OF MIMI.
