Bay Area filmmaker Jonathan Parker will present and discuss a rare 35mm screening of his first feature film, a wry, contemporary adaptation of Herman Melville‘s story Bartleby, the Scrivener. Crispin Glover stars as Bartleby, a mundane office worker whose constant refusal of duties confounds his clueless boss (David Paymer). Critically acclaimed at its release, it captures the darkly comic tone of the story, enhanced by a score performed on the theremin. Co-composers Parker and Seth Asarnow will give a live onstage demonstration of this influential electronic instrument. Additional cast: Glenne Headly, Maury Chaykin, Joe Piscopo, Seymour Cassel, Carrie Snodgress, Dick Martin, Josh Kornbluth. Music: Seth Asarnow, Jonathan Parker. Writers: Jonathan Parker, Catherine DiNapoli. Director: Jonathan Parker. (US 2001) 83 min. plus discussion and theremin demonstration.
