Dirctor Mike Nichols' The Graduate burst upon American movie screens in 1967, immediately becoming a cultural touchstone for an entire filmgoing generation. The then-young Richard Chew (editor of Star Wars and Shanghai Noon among many others) was not immune to the pull of Nichols' vision - or to the performances of Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft - and he'll talk about how The Graduate was in his mind while editing Risky Business (with Tom Cruise and Rebecca DeMornay) into its finished form some 15 years later. During an intermission following The Graduate, Mr. Chew will engage in a question and answer session with the audience. The evening concludes with a complete screening of Risky Business.
NOTE: The Crystal Gallery Cafe will not be open for this performance.
This event is made possible by the Bob Allison (Allesee) Endowed Chair in Media in the Department of Communication at Wayne State University. Mr. Chew appears courtesy of the Visiting Artists program of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Tickets are $5.00; DIA members free!
