“It may be the most sophisticated political satire ever made in Hollywood.”
Pauline Kael, The New Yorker

Join us for a depth exploration of this stunningly prescient, searingly relevant, brilliantly rendered satirical political thriller from 1962. A showcase for John Frankenheimer’s directorial mastery, a darkly satirical script, and mesmerizing performances by all. The film links dream imagery, memory, and the symbolic language of cinema to metaphorically intensify the portrayal of PTSD, Cold War paranoia, and the demonically human forces manipulating a presidential election. Includes a lively lecture and an amplifying discussion.

Terry Ebinger, MS is a passionate film scholar whose work is rooted in depth psychology, film art, myth, and culture.
