Club of Central and Northern Arizona FilmBar Event (Phoenix, AZ)
November 13, 2016 @ 5:00 pm$15
Want to learn how to analyze a film while you enjoy you and fellow alums enjoy wine and cheese? Ever wondered what the “big deal” is about To Kill A Mockingbird?
The Phoenix Ivy Council alums and their guests are invited to a special screening where ASU film professor Joe Fortunato (Yale ’89) will screen, discuss, and provide “live commentary” on the beloved film classic To Kill A Mockingbird (1962) starring Gregory Peck.
We will start with a social happy hour from 5–6 p.m. with a variety of cheeses to go with your wine. At 6:00 Professor Fortunato will provide a brief discussion about the background and making of the film. Then we will screen the film in FilmBar’s beautiful and comfortable screening room. During the film, live commentary will be provided, giving you insights into the film-making process and some guidance on how to “read” a film creatively.
After the film, we can discuss what we’ve learned and debate if it lives up to its “classic film” reputation (and discuss what that designation means in the subjective world of creative art).
