THE PRODUCERS

Is this the most tasteless, most hilarious movie ever to come out of New York City?  Yes!  Yes! It’s It’s schlapschtick!  Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom figure out that it will be easier to make money producing theatrical flops than sure fire hits, so they set about making Springtime for Hitler, a Broadway musical about the nicer side of Adolf…”Don’t be stupid, be a smarty.  Come and join the Nazi party!”

 

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.
