Spielberg!

June 23 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Like the “Fellini-esque” Fellini and the “Hitchcockian” Hitchcock before him, Steven Spielberg is an artist whose work is so ubiquitous and instantly identifiable that his name has inspired its very own adjective—“Spielbergian”. One of the most commercially successful directors of all time, Spielberg is the creator of such beloved modern classics as JawsClose Encounters of the Third KindE.T. and the Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park series.

Join us on Thursday, June 23rd at 7:30pm virtually on Zoom as film historians Irv Slifkin and Laurence Lerman of FilmShul present on the life and career of the grand storyteller, with a particular focus on his upbringing as an Orthodox Jew and his later Jewish re-awakening, which yielded such vital works as Schindler’s List and Munich. His interests have also inspired the creation of the Shoah Foundation and Righteous Persons Foundation, which make Jewish history and tradition more accessible to all.

Please contact Justin at 713-782-4162 or Justin@hcrj.org to sign up.
