AN EVENING WITH ILLEANA DOUGLAS:
“I BLAME DENNIS HOPPER”
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4 • 7PM
Illeana Douglas has enjoyed a diverse career as actor, writer, director and star of film and television, and her acclaimed new memoir, I Blame Dennis Hopper (And Other Stories From a Life Lived In and Out of the Movies), is as lively and charming as any of her performances. Part autobiography and part love letter to movies and moviemakers, it starts with how Easy Rider transformed her parents from middle-class squares into hippies, and how her grandfather Melvyn Douglas first brought her onto a movie set (Being There). Then it expands into candid, often hilarious stories about her experiences, which have included such films as Goodfellas, Cape Fear, To Die For, The Californians and Ghost World, as well as such television series as Six Feet Under and Welcome to Sweden.
In this program, Douglas will participate in an onstage interview and share stories illustrated by film clips.
Invited guests include directors Terry Zwigoff and Jonathan Parker; following the program she will sign her book, available for sale at the Rafael.
Program approximately 90 minutes plus discussion.
ADMISSION FOR THIS PROGRAM: $15. General | $12. CFI Members
