This mini-retrospective complements the release of Hal, Amy Scott’s fantastic new documentary, which will occasion a filmmaker visit.

Although Hal Ashby directed a remarkable string of acclaimed, widely admired classics throughout the 1970s—Harold and Maude, The Last Detail, Shampoo, Coming Home, Being There (all of which are included in the series)—he is often overlooked amid the crowd of luminaries from his generation. With this series, we celebrate a criminally undersung cinema hero.

In Conversation: Amy Scott & Alexander Payne

On Friday, November 16, 2018, at 7 pm, Film Streams will welcome Amy Scott to the Dundee Theater (4952 Dodge St.) for a screening of her film Hal, with post-show Q&A with fellow filmmaker, Film Streams board member, and Hal Ashby superfan Alexander Payne, who appears in Scott’s film. Tickets for this special screening are on sale now. The event launches a full run of HAL at the Dundee Theater Linder Microcinema.
