Filmbar Film School Is Back!
“Superman” (1978) – the classic big screen treatment of the Man of Steel ushered in the modern superhero genre and made you believe a man could fly!
Want to learn how to analyze a film? Ever wondered about the history and stories behind on one of the most beloved superhero films of all time? Join us for “FilmBar Film School" where ASU film professor Joe Fortunato will screen, discuss, and provide "live commentary" on the 1978 classic Superman!
The evening will start with a brief discussion about the background and making of the film. Enjoy your favorite beverage from the bar! Then we will screen the film in FilmBar’s beautiful and comfortable screening room. Think of it as a “living room book club” for film fans! During the film, live commentary will be provided, giving you insights into the filmmaking process and some guidance on how to "read" a film creatively.
After the film, we can discuss what we've learned and debate if it lives up to its reputation as one of the great superhero films and a landmark in American cinema!
(NOTE: While no "homework" or prior knowledge of film or this movie is required, if you've never seen the picture, some people might want to watch it for the first time before coming to the event without the interruptions of live commentary to "experience" the film as it was intended. That is a personal choice, of course, and not a requirement to attend!)
