In the next month I will be presenting two film screenings in Chicago. Extra credit will be available to any of my students who attend either screening. (Refer to the Extra Credit page of your course website for details.)
On Friday, February 17th at 8 PM I will be hosting a special double feature screening of Love Stalker and Love and Anarchy at the Portage Theater. Love Stalker is a brand new indie comedy made in St. Louis by first-time filmmakers and Columbia College alums Matt Glasson and Bowls MacLean. Love and Anarchy is a political satire made in Italy by Lina Wertmuller in 1973. The connecting thread between the films is that they were both executive produced by the legendary Billy “Silver Dollar” Baxter. In addition to presenting the films, I will host a Q&A session with Glasson and MacLean immediately following the Love Stalker screening. Please note that Love and Anarchy will be screened in its rarely seen American version.

Also, on Saturday, March 3, I will be hosting a screening of Todd Haynes’ I’m Not There, an experimental/narrative hybrid film about the life of Bob Dylan, as part of Facets Night School’s REEL PEOPLE series. Admission is a low $5 and is FREE for Facets members.

Hope to see you at one or both of the screenings!
