IT’S MOVIE MONDAY AT DIFF – DAY 5!

INTERNATIONAL SPOTLIGHT: GERMANY23871675209908333

German Spotlight Films: German Films from the Golden Age to Current Cinema 

 

SPECIAL PRESENTATIONS & Featured Q&A’s:

THE HUSTLER Screening & Q&A with Piper Laurie
Monday, April 13 at the Angelika Film Center

We are thrilled to announce that Piper Laurie will be in town for the screening of THE HUSTLER, followed by a special Q&A discussion. 
 
Paul Newman is the pool-shooting ‘Fast’ Eddie Felson, a man squeezed between dangerous forces and his own ambitions. Newman’s brooding lead is Piper Laurie as his tragic love, a coiled George C. Scott as a shifty gambler, and comedian Jackie Gleason in a subtle dramatic part. THE HUSTLER looks and feels like the last ’40s Film Noir, its oppressive visuals set off by brilliant performances.

 

MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED Screening & Featured Q&A Discussion
Monday, April 13 at the Angelika Film Center

Where a college diploma once meant a guaranteed job, now more than half of America’s new college graduates are unable to find employment. Director Greg Whiteley locates the source of the problem not in the economy but in our educational system. With a world of information available a click away, and the modern workplace valuing skills like collaboration and critical thinking, our rote-based system of learning has become outdated.

Immediately following the screening of MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED, FilmMatters and Art House Dallas will hold a discussion on the current state of the American education system and on documentaries that seek to spark conversation on educational issues.

DIFF Films Forge New Frontiers23871675210130003
Despite our age of information and ubiquitous connectivity, the myth of the Frontier, like that of the old West, remains alive in many part of the world. Several movies in this year’s Dallas International Film Festival reminds us of that reality.
