Screening of John Huston’s Wise Blood
Lucas Theatre for the Arts, Savannah
Join us at the historic Lucas Theatre for a rare screening of actor and director John Huston’s 1979 film, based on Flannery O’Connor’s award-winning novel. Moderated by GHS Senior Historian Dr. Stan Deaton, the screening will be preceded by a brief panel discussion featuring film producer Stratton Leopold (producer/actor Wise Blood), and Flannery O’Connor scholar Dr. Bruce Gentry (Georgia College & State University), discussing the making of the film in Savannah, how the novel translates to the big screen, and O’Connor’s enduring influence on the arts and contemporary popular culture.
