A Star is Born




Film Streams Courses is a new program of themed, multi-week seminars led by Film Streams Education Director Diana Martinez, PhD, that will provide adults with an introduction to the tools of film analysis.


The Hollywood Musical

Dates: Sundays, July 2 – July 30, 2017, 11 am – 2 pm

With its toe-tapping rhythms, smooth moves, and charismatic stars, the musical epitomizes the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. But despite their Technicolor façade, seemingly happy musicals are just as attuned to darker sides of life. This Course will study how the musical, from its early days to the present, depicts moments of utter delight as well as glimpses of complex social realities.
