As America prepares to enter WWII, legendary Hungarian film director Michael Curtiz grapples with political intervention and a dysfunctional relationship with his estranged daughter amid the troubled production of his classic film Casablanca. This stylish dramatization pays homage to Curtiz’ trademark ‘Noir’ aesthetic, and also recreates his struggles with a zealous government agent, paralleling the conflict raging overseas for those European cast and crew members who had fled Nazi oppression. Casablanca, the cinematic masterpiece of pro-Allied propaganda, garnered eight Oscar nominations and three awards, including Best Director and Best Picture.
Preceding the Monday, January 13 screening of Curtiz will be the Southeast US Premiere of the short film Minor Accident of War featuring the attendance of director Diane Weis and film subject Edward Field.
After the premiere, join us for a special under the stars presentation of Michael Curtiz's Casablanca at 8pm at the Miami Beach SoundScape.
