Adaptations Film Series:
Pleasures and Pitfalls of Film Adaptation Forum

Wednesday, Feb 01
5:00 PM
The Ibrahim Theater at the International House

The history of cinema is one of adaptations from other media. Great adaptations are often more innovative and enduring than their sources. Indeed, they compel us to rethink the whole relationship between originals and copies, sources and targets. Distinguished faculty from Penn and NYU discuss some of their favorite film adaptations, including those featured in the Adaptations Film Series. With Carolyn Abbate, Christopher H Browne Distinguished Professor of Music, Penn; Tim Corrigan, Professor of English and Cinema Studies, Penn; and Alex Galloway, Associate Professor of Culture and Communication, NYU.
