Seminar: Both Ends Burning: Social and Sensual Movements in the Films of Paul Verhoeven

This seminar explores how a Dutch child raised during Nazi occupation amidst resistance fighters, sex workers, artists, and scientists found his way to become the internationally acclaimed one-man vanguard of Dutch narrative cinema in the '70s, the preeminent satirist of post-Reagan America, the foremost innovator in the “gargantuan special effects mainstream tentpole” subgenre of Hollywood filmmaking, an acclaimed theological scholar, and now, approaching 80, a respected (but never respectable) arthouse auteur. Presented by film critic Jason Shawhan.
