Screening & Discussion of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation Helen K. Gediman, PhD
Wednesday, May 23, 2018 7:30 – 10:00 pm The Marianne and Nicholas Young Auditorium 247 East 82nd Street, NYC

Francis Ford Coppola’s 1974 masterpiece, The Conversation, is the brilliant forerunner of films in the surveillance stalking genre in which professionals are paid to stalk. The incomparable Gene Hackman portrays a schizoid private investigator whose personality deteriorates under work-related personal guilt that breaks through his characteristic dissociative defenses. The surveillance technology of the Watergate era that sustain his fragile persona is uncannily prescient of present-day omnipresent hacking in Cyberspace. For chills and thrills in great cinema, come one and all.
