PELHAM, NY -- On Thursday, October 20th at 7:30 p.m., The Picture House Regional Film Center (TPH) will present a special screening and discussion of the Oliver Stone’s 1986 film Salvador. Film critic, bestselling author, and Oliver Stone expert Matt Zoller Seist will discuss the film with TPH critic-in-residence Marshall Fine after the screening.
Matt Zoller Seitz is the Editor-in-Chief of RogerEbert.com. He is also the TV critic for New York Magazine and Vulture.com, and was a finalist for the 1994 Pulitzer Prize in criticism. A Brooklyn-based writer and filmmaker, Seitz has written, narrated, edited, or produced over a hundred hours of video essays about cinema history and style for TheMuseum of the Moving Image and The L Magazine. He is also the founder and original editor of The House Next Door, now a part of Slant Magazine, and the publisher of Press Play, a blog of film and TV criticism and video essays.
Over the course of five years, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone (Midnight Express, Scarface, Platoon, JFK, Natural Born Killers, Snowden) and New York Times bestselling author Matt Zoller Seitz (The Wes Anderson Collection) discussed, debated, and deconstructed the arc of Stone's outspoken, controversial life and career with extraordinary candor. The Oliver Stone Experience collects those conversations for the first time including anecdotes about Stone’s childhood, Vietnam, his struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder, and his continual struggle to reinvent himself as an artist. Their dialogue is illustrated by hundreds of never-before-seen photographs and documents from Stone’s personal archive, dating back to Stone’s birth: personal snapshots, private correspondence, annotated script pages and storyboards, behind-the-scenes photography, and production files from all of his films to date—through 2016’s Snowden, and including Stone’s epic Showtime mini-series Untold HIstory of the United States.
Tickets to the special screening and discussion are $15/general admission, $12/students, seniors, and members and are available at www.thepicturehouse.org or at the box office, 175 Wolfs Lane, Pelham, NY 10803.
