Join us for a discussion with Dr. Carl Peters on A Great Agitator: Charlie Chaplin in Modern Times.
Someone said: anyone can make you cry but it takes a genius to make you laugh. Charlie Chaplin in his films points out that it is a little more complicated than that. He shows us that in laughter there are tears; in tears, immeasurable laughter. The figure of the Tramp lives to the point of tears. The manner in which pathos is composed and carried out through film is the outstanding question for Chaplin.
This event is free to attend and everyone is welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
Thurs, Oct 24
