Live discussion and interview with director Steve James (Hoop Dreams and The Interrupters) and Robert K. Elder (author The Film That Changed My Life)
We have a very special screening of the 1976 Oscar-winning documentary Harlan County USA at the Music Box Theatre this Sunday, February 19! This screening will be hosted by Steve James, the director of Hoop Dreams and The Interrupters, who chose Harlan County USA as his pivotal film experience when interviewed for Robert K. Elder’s book The Film That Changed my Life.
This screening is being offered as part of the Music Box Theatre’s ongoing series based on Mr. Elder’s book and will feature a live discussion and interview with Steve James and Robert Elder following the film.
We would like to extend an invitation to Occupy Chicago protesters to attend the 1:30pm screening of Harlan County USA as our guests. Members of the movement can simply say the code phrase “I Occupy Chicago” at the Music Box Theatre box office that afternoon to receive a complimentary ticket. This offer is limited to 200 tickets and applies to the 1:30PM event only but protesters are welcome to purchase tickets at the regular rate for the 5:00pm screening of “The Interrupters” if they choose to.
