Shakespeare On Film: Chimes At Midnight
Falstaff commands center stage in Chimes at Midnight, Orson Welles’ groundbreaking film. Considered by some to be Welles’ greatest accomplishment in film, "Chimes at Midnight" incorporates elements of five of Shakespeare’s plays to reframe the larger-than-life comedic presence of Falstaff to magnificent effect.
Joseph McBride (School of Cinema, San Francisco State University, author of Orson Welles), will join moderator Jim Kearney (English, UCSB) for a post-screening discussion.
This event is free but a reservation is recommended in order to guarantee a seat.
Tickets will be released on Wednesday, January 3 at 11:00 AM.
