25 March, Tuesday

UP TIGHT, USA, 1968, Jules Dassin

Introduced by Robert Spadoni, CWRU. Never released to video or DVD, this fascinating but forgotten artifact of the 1960s 'Black Power' era was shot on Cleveland's East Side shortly after the Hough riots. This movie is essentially a remake of John Ford's 1935 classic, “The Informer”.

26 March, Wednesday


Introduced by Lou Giannetti, CWRU. A NYC slacker shuffles off to Cleveland and Florida with his 16-year-old Hungarian cousin and his dim buddy. Jarmusch's minimalist road movie remains one of the freshest, funniest, most acclaimed, and most influential independent films of the 1980s.
