Susan Delson & Richard Koszarski on NYC’s Movie Renaissance: 1945 - 1955 at Film Forum
The festival NYC’s Movie Renaissance: 1945-1955 is running at Film Forum from Jan. 28 to Feb. 10.
Mainly comprised of film shot on the East Coast during a brief surge of local production by such directors as Jules Dassin, Elia Kazan and Stanley Kubrick, Film Forum’s latest offering was inspired by the new book Keep ‘Em in the East: Kazan, Kubrick and the Postwar New York Renaissance by film historian Richard Koszarski.
In this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI, film historian Susan Delson joins Richard for a discussion of why this era is so important to the legacy of New York City moviemaking.
