Academy Award winner Melissa Leo presents ‘Frozen River,’ April 2

Posted by Hugh Manon | Posted on Mar 31, 2013

Academy Award-winning actress Melissa Leo will join us for a screening of Frozen River (Courtney Hunt, 2008, USA) at Clark University’s Razzo Hall on Tuesday, April 2 at 7:30 p.m. The film will be followed by a Q&A in which Ms. Leo will discuss her Oscar-nominated role in the film and answer questions from students.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2008, the AFI Award for Movie of the Year, and nominated for two Oscars, Frozen River is the story of two single mothers — one white, one Mohawk — who are drawn into the world of border smuggling across the frozen water of the St. Lawrence River. Quentin Tarantino said of Frozen River, “[It] put my heart in a vise and proceeded to twist that vise until the last frame.”

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 Clark students, faculty and staff. Seating is limited.

Please contact workshop co-organizers John Aylward or Hugh Manon for details.
