GITS development assistant Wendy Cohen here. For those of you based in L.A., I highly recommend taking advantage of KCET’s Spring Cinema Series starting February 25th at the Television Academy Theater in North Hollywood. In the past, Scott and I have posted Q&As from several screenings, including some of this year’s Oscar contenders. Each screening is followed by a discussion with cast/crew involved in the film and Deadline Hollywood film critic Pete Hammond. It’s an excellent opportunity to see some great movies, learn about filmmakers and their process, and ask questions to some of the top and most prolific creative people in our field.
As we have done for their fall series, roughly each week we will post a transcript or excerpts from the past week’s Q&A. If you’re a fan of independent cinema, I strongly recommend reading these and visiting the KCET website to see what screenings in the series may interest you.
The series’ first film, “The Face of Love,” stars Annette Bening as a grieving widow who happens upon a man (Ed Harris) who looks almost exactly like her deceased husband. The two then strike up a relationship and a flood of old feelings come rushing back to her again. Arie Posin directs this emotionally thorny drama about how we cope with loss, live in the moment and ultimately move forward.
Posin, also a co-writer of the movie, will be present after the screening for an exclusive conversation with Pete Hammond.
