MA Student Curated Event This Saturday

With a career spanning from the 1940s to the 1980s, Don Siegel is something of a Hollywood legend, a maverick who rebelled from within the system to create tough, gritty, personal movies. As part of UnionDocs’ on-going Docs on Auteurs series, they will be honoring Siegel with a presentation of Thys Ockersen’s rare documentary Don Siegel: The Last of the Independents (1980). Shot on the set of Siegel’s penultimate film, Rough Cut (1980), Ockersen gives us not only a privileged glimpse of the artist at work, but also Siegel’s reflections on his own life and career. Film historian Foster Hirsch will be present for post-screening discussion about Siegel’s legacy and career.
