Reeltime: Hollywood's Washington

“Curated by Northwestern Professor Chuck Kleinhans In the first country to elect a movie star President, Hollywood”s representation of politicians ranges from reverence to ridicule: just like American public opinion. Chuck Kleinhans will show an assortment of clips from Hollywood films to illustrate awe, populist skepticism, conspiratorial anxiety, counter cultural cynicism, satiric critique, sentimental romance, and farcical comedy as approaches the film industry has used to represent the highest office in America. Reeltime wishes to acknowledge the continued support of Hugh M. Hefner Foundation, whose generosity helped fund our fall Election Series.”
