Movies magically transport audiences to other realms using an urban backdrop, a fantasy land or even a different era to shape the story and its characters. Travel through time with a panel of movie buffs and history lovers, as they introduce movies that showcase a different era as a key part of the action. This program is presented in partnership with Trylon microcinema.
On March 26, join guest host, University of Minnesota Professor Emeritus Lary May, and watch "The Wanderers" (1979, DCP), directed by Philip Kaufman and starring Ken Wahl, Karen Alen and John Friedrich. This brilliant coming-of-age film takes place in a 1950s New York City gangland. Behind all the bravado, the film is both heartfelt and despairing.
About Lary May: May is professor emeritus of American studies at the University of Minnesota, with a specialty in film and popular culture.
