His haunting, enigmatic paintings are defined by a hard-edged realism and the presence of isolated figures alone in their thoughts.. In life, Hopper was notoriously taciturn and seldom gave interviews or appeared in public.. Director Brian O'Doherty, who knew Hopper and his wife, Jo, offers a rare documentary portrait of this aloof artist that is astute and revealing..

Facets Film School classes are an integral part of Facets' mission to make the best in classic, world, and independent cinema accessible to all.. Facets Film School provides a forum for discussion among film lovers, emerging mediamakers, and film veterans, encouraging an appreciation for films as an art form and means of communication, and allowing for an exploration of various film genres, techniques, filmmakers, actors, and more.. Led by local professors and other film experts, Film School courses run one evening per week for six weeks.. Each three-hour class session includes a film screening in our intimate small theater, along with time for lecture and discussion.. Film School courses are designed to be accessible to students of all levels, with or without any prior background in film studies.. Summer Session:.. July 15 August 22, 2013.. BEYOND MUMBLECORE: The DIY Generation.. Mondays.. July 15 August 19.. 7 10 pm.. Films screened and discussed:.. The Blair Witch Project.. (Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez, 1999).. Funny Ha Ha.. (Andrew Bujalski, 2002).. Kissing on the Mouth.. (Joe Swanberg, 2005).. Humpday.. (Lynn Shelton, 2009).. Tiny Furniture.. (Lena Dunham, 2010).. Tiger Tail in Blue.. (Frank V.. Ross, 2012).. The term "mumblecore" was embraced by critics to define the ultra-casual, low-fi style of an ascending independent film movement from a provocative group of American filmmakers.. However, it was also used in a pejorative fashion by writers aiming to dismiss these films as overhyped and amateurish.. This class aims to break down perpetuated stereotypes by exploring the distinctive styles and approaches of these tenacious trailblazers.. We will see how these DIY artists managed to influence the mainstream with their raw naturalism and authentic search for new ideas.. While these filmmakers are certainly united in their goal to portray truth devoid of contrivance, they each utilize remarkably different techniques, from scripted narratives to pure improvisation; from rugged handheld visuals to meticulously detailed compositions.. By taking full advantage of modern technological advances and viral marketing, these fresh-faced visionaries have arguably fulfilled Francis Ford Coppola's prediction in.. Hearts of Darkness.. that "professionalism.. will be destroyed" and "movies will become an art form.. " Come see why cinema will never be the same again and join the debate on whether this is, in fact, a good thing.. Please note that special guests will be here for some of the screenings to talk about their films! Stay tuned!.. MATT FAGERHOLM.. is a member of the Chicago Film Critics Association.. For the past four years, he has written film reviews and interviews for.. HollywoodChicago.. , as well as contributed to various publications including.. Time Out Chicago.. and.. The A.. V.. Club.. He is also the founder of.. Indie Outlook.. , a blog and podcast featuring exclusive interviews with some of the most exciting voices in modern independent filmmaking.. Register online: $125 for non-members.. Register online: $80 for members.. GENE KELLY AND THE EVOLUTION OF CINE-DANCE.. Tuesdays.. July 16 August 20.. Anchors Aweigh.. (George Sidney, 1945).. The Pirate.. (Vincente Minnelli, 1948).. On The  ...   Exit to Brooklyn.. (Uli Edel, 1989).. Far From Heaven.. (Todd Haynes, 2002).. Good Night, and Good Luck.. (George Clooney, 2005).. Nostalgic representations of 1950s American culture abound in contemporary cinema.. Since the early 1970s, "The Fifties" has stood as perhaps the most fertile period in Hollywood and is remembered with fondness by numerous American directors and audiences.. While many of these films celebrate the idyllic promise of happier times, there were also dynamically complex social and economic forces that defined this era.. In this class, we will examine cinematic depictions of the 1950s as a time of great change and growth amid the idealized conventional portrayals of family life in America.. Starting with Peter Bogdanovich's.. , arguably the initiator of the 1970s nostalgia film boom, we will watch and discuss the influence of 1950s America, and how this narrative represented the portrayal of crime, poverty, and agitation.. We will see a stark contrast to the common perception of "The Fifties" as a period of leisure and material comfort.. What does it mean to us today as we revisit this period of American prosperity and consumerism? How do these films prompt us to reconstruct the idea of "nostalgia," since it literally means a "longing to return home.. " This yearning for "home" is usually much more complex than a simple desire for an actual locale and every culture (and subculture) has its own version of nostalgia.. In this class, we will discuss the effects of nostalgic representations in cinema as they relate to postmodernism, irony and the future.. KATE NEWBOLD.. is an advanced PhD candidate at Northwestern University, where she is studying memory and archiving in postwar American media.. Since 2008 she has taught several courses at Northwestern on a variety of media topics, including nostalgia and popular culture, film analysis, media adaptation, and history of animation.. Her publications include essays on archiving media memories from the 1950s and have appeared in academic journals such as.. Spectator.. Velvet Light Trap.. THE WALK AND TALK OF AARON SORKIN.. Thursdays.. July 18 August 22.. A Few Good Men.. (Rob Reiner, 1992).. Malice.. (Harold Becker, 1993).. The American President.. (Rob Reiner, 1995).. Charlie Wilson's War.. (Mike Nichols, 2007).. The Social Network.. (David Fincher, 2010).. Moneyball.. (Bennett Miller, 2011).. "Our responsibility is to captivate you for however long we've asked for your attention.. Aaron Sorkin.. "Walk and Talk" is a distinctive storytelling-technique in which a number of characters have a conversation en route.. The most basic form involves a walking character that is then joined by another character and on the way to their destinations they talk.. Variations include interruptions from other characters and walk and talk relay races, in which new characters join the group and one of the original characters leaves the conversation, while the remaining characters continue the walking and talking.. This shooting technique was popularized by screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, who came to television via theater, first used it on the TV dramedy.. Sports Night.. and later developed it for the hit drama.. The West Wing.. Because of Sorkin's trademark rapid-fire dialogue and extended monologues, the walk and talk would become widely known as Sorkin's signature move.. In this course we will take a look at each of Sorkin's feature films and examine the walk and talk of his characters.. Why is this technique so effective in captivating viewers interests? And what does his success say about our relationship to politics and gender roles in America?.. CHRISTINA WRIGHT.. is a film theorist, instructor and screenwriter.. She holds an M.. Phil in Film Theory and History from The University of Dublin, Trinity College.. Christina is also a Character Education Specialist and is the Program Director of two film/drama based character education programs:.. The Character Reel.. (for children and youth) and..
