Spirituality, Censure, and Silence: An Evening With Paul Schrader

"No one is out there saying, We really want to make your dark movie. You are running against the current, the economic current of the medium. The only thing that keeps you going is you dont have any choice."  
Paul Schrader, Creative Screenwriting, 2015

Join us as we welcome one of Hollywood's greatest outliers in a discussion of cinematic style, vision, and future. Film director and screenwriter Paul Schrader has written screenplays for a renowned collection of films  including his partnerships with Martin Scorsese  --  Taxi Driver (1976), Raging Bull (1980), and The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) --   and directed his own classics, including Blue Collar (1978), Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters (1985), Light Sleeper (1992), Affliction (1997), and  the Oscar-nominated First Reformed (2017). Using clips from his films, Schrader will tackle the familiar gravitas, private wounds, and spiritual crisis of his infamous characters, as well as discuss the difficulties and hurdles in making his personal vision come to the screen.

Schrader will also take a look at the business of film production and distribution from the 1970s through today, including the ways in which cinema has transitioned, and how a new model of the movie experience can benefit indie filmmakers, studios, and their audience.

Presented by The  Peekskill Film Festival in collaboration with Hudson Valley MOCA, in association with AIM19.
