Directed by Mary Harron, Charlie Says looks past the mythology of the Manson Family murders to focus on the experiences of three women under his spell, both at the time and later in prison. An independent-film avatar, Harron is also the director of I Shot Andy Warhol and American Psycho, as well as the Margaret Atwood miniseries Alias Grace, and for Charlie Says she joins forces again with screenwriter Guinevere Turner. We are proud to welcome Harron for our latest Film Comment Free Talk on Charlie Says and her groundbreaking career.
