RELENTLESS RENEGADE: The Films of Norman Jewison - May 25-30

From May 25 - 30, The Film Society of Lincoln Center played host to Norman Jewison - a filmmaker that FSLC Programming Associate Josh Strauss said, “In American mainstream movie history there is a small handful of producer/directors that can lay claim to an extraordinarily immense, eclectic, and successful body of work. There is no doubt that Norman Jewison is a prominent member of that club." The series marked the first major retrospective of the director’s work in New York featuring appearances by Jewison, along with Academy Award winners Olympia Dukakis and Lee Grant and others participating in Q&As and discussing several of the classic films helmed by the great director.
