June 7, 2013 - 9:30am to 11:30am
Location
Gallery in Room 100
Event Type
Panel Discussion

A panel considers some of the performances Robert Altman committed to film from the perspective of cinematography and acting itself. That so many featured players in Altman’s films returned to work on multiple projects is a testimony to the director’s ability to raise the craft of filming performance to a fine art.

Panelists are Virginia Wright-Wexman, professor, University of Illinois, Chicago; Michael Murphy, actor; Pierre Mignot, cinematographer; and Terry Lawson, U-M screenwriting lecturer and film critic, moderator.

This event is one part of a series of Altmannerisms: Conversations Celebrating the Opening of the Robert Altman Archive. We invite you to take part in any or all of the events.
