Indie filmmaker John Sayles to make appearances at IU Cinema as highlight of 2011-12 season
Independent filmmaker and two-time Oscar nominee John Sayles will deliver a lecture, answer questions and introduce screenings of three of his films at Indiana University’s IU Cinema Sept. 8-9.
Sayles’ visit is one of the highlights of the IU Cinema’s 2011-2012 season.
The new season contains an array of contemporary and classic indie and international films, children’s programming, films from IU’s extensive archival collections and visits from some of today’s top filmmakers, screenwriters and directors.
Known as one of the “godfathers” of the U.S. independent film movement, the director of Lone Star (1996), Eight Men Out (1988) and most recently, Amigo (2010), among many others, Sayles will deliver a Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker lecture at 3 p.m. Sept. 9. The lecture is free and open to the public.
