A true American maverick, Philip Kaufman is hard to pin down: a visual stylist who is truly literate, a San Franciscan who often makes European films (like Henry & June and The Unbearable Lightness of Being), an accessible Hollywood storyteller with a sophisticated touch (from co-creating Indiana Jones to his masterful astronaut saga The Right Stuff). On the occasion of her new book-length study, Philip Kaufman (University of Illinois Press), we are pleased to welcome acclaimed author and Columbia University professor Annette Insdorf to present a special screening of Kaufman’s The Wanderers, followed by a book signing and reception.

Fresh from the success of his 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Kaufman shifted gears for this lyrical, serio-comic adaptation of Richard Price’s acclaimed debut novel, about an Italian-American greaser gang coming of age on the streets of The Bronx in the early 1960s.
