Symposium celebrates the unreal reality of indie director Alan Rudolph

April 26, 2018
General

Join us for any or all of the symposium,

The Unreal Reality of Alan Rudolph: Conversations with the Filmmaker & Collaborators

Quirky, off kilter, stylishly romantic and filled with moments of wry humor, Alan Rudolph makes movies with dreamy eyed protagonists searching for love in all the wrong places. He often mashes up genres into something new and unique and peppers his films with elements not always beholden to realism. He began his four decade career under the watchful eye of mentor Robert Altman, but he soon created a body of work that is clearly his own vision.

All symposium sessions are free and open to the public, but attendees must purchase tickets to view Cinetopia films.
