Resistance on Film: Stories of Resistance

12:00-2:00 ROME OPEN CITY (Roberto Rossellini, 1945)

 "...a harrowing drama about the Nazi occupation of Rome and the
  brave few who struggled against it... Rome Open City (Roma città
  aperta) is a shockingly authentic experience, conceived and
  directed amid the ruin of World War II, with immediacy in every
  frame. Marking a watershed moment in Italian cinema, this galvanic
  work garnered awards around the globe and left the beginnings of a
  new film movement in its wake."

Q&A: Ezra Haber Glenn, MIT/DUSP; Giuliana Minghelli, McGill 46-3002

2:30-5:00  ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN (Director: Alan Pakula, 1976)

 "Academy Award winners Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman star in
  this true story as Washington Post reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob
  Woodward, whose investigation of a seemingly minor hotel room
  break-in uncovers the greatest political scandal in United States
  history and leads to the downfall of President Richard Nixon."
