    BEATLES REVOLUTIONS: I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND

    Set against the backdrop of Beatlemania, I Wanna Hold Your Hand (1978) centers on the comical quest of six New Jersey teens to see the Beatles at their 1964 performance on the set of the The Ed Sullivan Show. Robert Zemeckis’ directorial debut imagines the power of a musical phenomenon to shape a cultural moment. One of the first collaborations between writers Zemeckis and Bob Gale and producer Steven Spielberg, I Wanna Hold Your Hand is the story of fans whose persistence is matched only by a musical revolution that won’t be stopped.

    BEATLES REVOLUTIONS: LET IT BE

    Director Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s documentary Let It Be (1970) was originally intended to showcase the band’s creative process and to represent a return to form during a time when creative and interpersonal disagreement weighed heavily on the group. Instead, the film stands as an elegy for the Beatles, immortalizing the tensions between them, as well as the virtuosity of their iconic final rooftop performance.

    Musician and producer Alan Parsons will join moderator David Novak (Music, UCSB) for a post-screening discussion.

    SCRIPT TO SCREEN: FIRST MAN

    "First Man" (2018) conveys the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon by focusing on Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) over the decade leading up to the historic Apollo 11 flight. A visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong’s perspective, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the film explores the triumphs and the costs—for Armstrong, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.

    Blue Horizons 2018 Film Premiere

    Join us for the premiere of several engaging and topical short films produced by students in the Blue Horizons Summer Program for Environmental Media. During this nine-week summer program, students learn elements that are essential to producing documentary films – from developing a film’s core idea and story, to thinking about its impact on its audiences, to the nuts-and-bolts of video production. After examining the critical issues of our region’s oceans and seashores, students develop their own stories and produce their own short documentaries.

    Amar Akbar Anthony

    "Amar Akbar Anthony" was a Bollywood blockbuster when it was released in 1977 and has become a classic of Hindi cinema and a touchstone of Indian popular culture. Delighting audiences with its songs and madcap adventures, the film follows the heroics of three Bombay brothers separated in childhood from their parents and one another. Beyond the freewheeling comedy and camp, however, is a potent vision of social harmony, as the three protagonists, each raised in a different religion, discover they are true brothers in the end.
