Lecture: ‘Film and Terrorism’ Conversation
Do you love cheesy rom-coms and poorly made horror films? If you’re a big blockbuster buff, consider taking your film-watching habits to a higher level of globally conscious with a discussion of filmmaker Olivier Assayas’ portrayal of terrorism in his movies. Assayas has written films such as “Clean” and “Summer Hours” (neither of which is cheesy rom-com or a poorly made horror flicks). Led by Rubén Gallo — director of Princeton’s Program in Latin American Studies —the discussion will engage Assayas and critic Ian Buruma in a dynamic conversation.
