Programs & Classes

Film Series Class with Reid Schultz

Coming in fall! The Serious Side of Woody Allen

During the 1970s, Woody Allen spent a decade mastering a sophisticated form of film comedy mixing low-brow silly antics of classic American silent humor with his droll, intellectual stand-up routines, and became a sensation. Then the laughter stopped. A new Allen emerged. From 1978 through 1992 Woody Allen took a serious look at relationships and human nature. During this period Allen was nominated for 8 Oscars, winning three times, making this one of his most acclaimed and creative periods. Each class contains a lecture and viewing of a full-length film. Reid will also lead a discussion on the previewed film for further analysis. A total of six full-length feature films will be presented and include the following titles: “Interiors”, “Manhattan”, “Hannah and her Sisters” “Another Woman”, “Crimes and Misdemeanors.”, “Husbands and Wives”.
