Due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy, Dennis Doros will not be able to travel to Indiana for these events. The Cinema will reschedule dates in the spring of 2013 to present his lecture along with a screening of the newly restored Shirley Clarke film, Portrait of Jason. Shirley Clarke was a vital part of the burgeoning post-war American film movement, and has been considered the most important female director of that period; creating art, controversy and acclaim throughout her career. She was one of the first signers — and the only woman — of the New American Cinema manifesto in 1961. IU Cinema hosts Dennis Doros from Milestone Films, to present a program of three of the director’s important works and discuss their restoration of Portrait of Jason, a program that he presented at the Berlin International Film Festival earlier this year.

The series is sponsored by Department of Communication and Culture, Black Film Center/Archive, Indiana University Film and Media Studies, and IU Cinema. Special thanks to professors Joan Hawkins and Michael Martin.
