AFS and Richard Linklater Present: RETURN OF THE SECAUCUS SEVEN

May 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm - $11.25

Hosted by Richard Linklater with a post-screening audience discussion.

John Sayles’ ensemble study of a group of friends who reunite for a weekend together in New Hampshire only to find that old problems have a way of becoming new again. This film set off a wave of similar films including the bigger-budgeted THE BIG CHILL and led to a period of self reflection among the generation that came of age in the ‘60s. In 35mm.

ABOUT JEWELS IN THE WASTELAND

AFS Founder and Artistic Director Richard Linklater returns with the latest cycle of Jewels In The Wasteland, a series designed to spotlight some of the best films made during the 1980s. This was a time when zillion-dollar studio blockbusters became the norm, while in other corners of the industry, a new kind of independent cinema was taking shape, and auteurs young and old made important work.

PRESENTED BY MUBI.
