Free film screening of Hale County This Morning, This Evening and panel talk with actor Danny Glover
"Hale County This Morning, This Evening" is an emotion-charged, poetically non-narrative exploration of stereotypes of African American males in the South. The film, a Sundance favorite with many accolades, is a contemporary look at Hale County, Alabama, chronicled by Walker Evans and James Agee in their book, "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men," (1941), which in turn inspired Aaron Copeland to write an opera. The film screens, FREE, on Monday, Nov. 12, 2018, at 6:30 PM at the Annenberg Center on the University of Pennsylvania Campus. A panel discussion with actor and the film's Executive Producer, Danny Glover, and others follows the screening. Registration is at Eventbrite, link in the post.
