  • Wednesday, April 3 at 4 p.m.
  • Razzo Hall, Traina Center for the Arts

Indie film legend L.M. Kit Carson will host a screening of his path-breaking 1967 pseudo-documentary David Holzman’s Diary (dir. Jim McBride), among the first films to be inducted into the National Film Registry.  Mr. Carson will be present for a panel discussion and Q&A after the screening.

L.M. Kit Carson is a renowned figure in the history in American independent cinema. He has been involved with such notable films as the Dennis Hopper documentary The American Dreamer (director), the Palme d’Or winning drama Paris, Texas (screenwriter); the horror-parody The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (writer/producer); and Wes Anderson’s debut film Bottle Rocket (producer).

This event is part of the first Clark University Mobile Media Workshop, generously supported by The Harrison Fund, and co-sponsored by the Communication & Culture, Screen Studies, and Music programs.

The screening and Q&A is free and open to the public.  Please contact workshop co-organizers John Aylward or Hugh Manon for details.
