Power, Politics, and Paranoia: The Art of Espionage
September 1-4, 2016
Join us at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth as we celebrate the art and allure of the spy film. Inspired by the duplicitous world of secret agents, government intrigue, and wartime treachery, many great filmmakers have created unforgettable characters and movie masterpieces. The spies in the Modern's series are most often anti-heroes, flawed, angst-ridden, and world weary. A few are even ordinary citizens plummeted into the world of espionage by misfortune, patriotic duty, or even comedic mistaken identity.
Screenings will be held in the Modern's auditorium. Tickets are $9, $7 for Modern members, and $6 for Modern Reel People members. Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.themodern.org or by calling 817.738.9215.
Special guest Dr. Joan McGettigan has been instrumental in helping select the films for this series and will introduce and offer insights at each of the screenings.Dr. McGettigan is an associate professor in TCU's Bob Schieffer College of Communication, teaching courses in film history and critical film studies.
