ALL ABOUT EVE

ALL ABOUT EVE

 Truthfully, All About Eve would probably sit more happily in our THIS CREATIVE LIFE season but we’re squeezing it in here just because the story is mostly set in NYC and it’s generally considered Mankiewicz’s finest film.  The characterization, screenplay and performances are razor sharp, complex and multi-dimensional. “Fasten your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bumpy night.”

 

This screening will be accompanied with a screening of the short film ELLIS

ELLIS awakens our collective memory, taking you back to the early years of Ellis Island through the experience of one immigrant. Set in the abandoned Ellis Island Hospital complex and using JR’s unframed art installations, ELLIS tells the forgotten story of the immigrants who built America. It is the story of the ghosts of our countries past, the individuals who fled poverty, discrimination, and dictatorships, for a chance at a new life and eerily foreshadows the plight of those who currently seek the same opportunities and safety in this country and other parts of the world.
