On Sun, Aug 11, following the noon screening of THE PIRATE, Jennifer Fay, director of the Program in Film Studies at Vanderbilt University, will lead a Q&A session.
This post-film Q&A is part of FLiCX (Faculty Led Interactive Cinematic explorations). FLiCX is a partnership with the Vanderbilt Film Studies Program and the Office of the Dean of Students, and brings together faculty members from Vanderbilt, Watkins College of Art, Design & Film, Tennessee State University and Belmont University, among others, to join students and Belcourt audiences to talk about what they've just seen.
About THE PIRATE:
Gene Kelly sings, dances and swashbuckles his way into Judy Garland's heart in this Oscar-nominated musical directed by Garland's then-husband, Vincente Minnelli. Set on a Caribbean island in the 19th century, the film features Kelly—a traveling troubadour—masquerading as pirate "Mack the Black" to woo the sheltered Garland. Highlights include the famous "Be a Clown" number and performances by the acrobatic dance team the Nicholas Brothers.
This series would not be possible without the generous support of Nina and H.G. Webb.
