Demme Duo

Dec 14 2017 — Dec 17 2017
We end 2017 with a fond remembrance of filmmaker Jonathan Demme through two of his great works, PHILADELPHIA (1993) and STOREFRONT HITCHCOCK (1998).

Demme, who passed away in April 2017, began his career, like many of his contemporaries, under the guidance of legendary low-budget producer Roger Corman before becoming one of Hollywood’s greatest humanists. The trademarks of Demme’s style—a generous engagement with the humanity of his characters, extensive use of penetrating close-ups, and an innate understanding of music’s cinematic qualities—are all captured in this short but powerful series.
