John Cassavetes, though perhaps better known as an actor (in such films as Rosemary’s Baby), was one of the most talented American filmmakers of the twentieth century, and is widely regarded as the godfather of American independent film. Gena Rowlands is one of the greatest American actresses of all time, and worked with Cassavetes (her husband) in ten films. Come see Rowlands’s explosive performances and Cassavetes’s masterful direction, and witness the most fruitful director-actress partnership in American film history.
Film Series Host Clark Glennon is an undergraduate film student at Columbia University. He was born and raised in Brattleboro and was extensively involved in theater and music. He was first exposed to John Cassavetes via the 1971 romantic comedy Minnie and Moskowitz, co-starring Gena Rowlands and Seymour Cassel.
