Blood, Bone & Marrow: A Night of Harry Crews @ Hippodrome Cinema
Oct 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Blood, Bone & Marrow: A Night of Harry Crews @ Hippodrome Cinema
The Hippodrome Cinema will present a rare public screening of the “lost” 1993 documentary “Harry Crews: Guilty As Charged.”
Immediately following the film, there will be a reception with Ted Geltner, author of “Blood, Marrow and Bone,” the first full-length, authorized biography of Harry Crews. The event will feature a panel discussion with Geltner and special guests.

About the Book:

In 2010, Ted Geltner drove to Gainesville, Florida, to pay a visit to Harry Crews and ask the legendary author if he would be willing to be the subject of a literary biography. His health rapidly deteriorating, Crews told Geltner he was on board and would even sit for interviews and tell his stories one last time. “Ask me anything you want, bud,” Crews said. “But you’d better do it quick.”

The result is “Blood, Bone, and Marrow,” the first full-length biography of one of the most unlikely figures in twentieth-century American literature, a writer who emerged from a dirt-poor South Georgia tenant farm and went on to create a singularly unique voice of fiction. With books such as Scar Lover, Body, and Naked in Garden Hills, Crews opened a new window into southern life, focusing his lens on the poor and disenfranchised, the people who skinned the hogs and tended the fields, the “grits,” as Crews affectionately called his characters and himself. He lived by a code of his own design, flouting authority and baring his soul, and the stories of his whiskey-and-blood-soaked lifestyle created a myth to match any of his fictional creations. His outlaw life, his distinctive voice and the context in which he lived combine to form the elements of a singularly compelling narrative about an underappreciated literary treasure.

“A lean and pleasingly consumable book . . . Harry Crews led a big, strange, sad and somehow very American life. It is well told here.”
—Dwight Garner, New York Times

“Does real justice to a complicated, outsized literary figure . . . Trying to separate the conjoined twins of Harry Crews, the shit-kicking, vodka-swilling legend, and Harry Crews, the person, is a delicate, messy operation. Blood, Bone, and Marrow manages to do it without either dying on the table.”
—Margaret Eby, New Republic

About the Film:

The Hippodrome Cinema will present a rare public screening of the “lost” 1993 documentary HARRY CREWS: GUILTY AS CHARGED, which has remained virtually unseen for the past 20 years.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Tom Thurman (who also made the 2006 doc BUY
THE TICKET, TAKE THE RIDE: HUNTER S. THOMPSON ON FILM), HARRY CREWS: GUILTY
AS CHARGED is an hour-long, intimate portrait of the controversial,
Georgia-born author, and features candid and exclusive interviews with
Crews himself, as well as a number of his close friends and associates.

From award-winning director Keiichi Hara (Colorful) and Japanese powerhouse Production I.G (creators of Ghost in the Shell and A Letter to Momo) comes a remarkable story of a blossoming young artist. As all of Edo flocks to see the work of the famous painter Hokusai, his daughter O-Ei toils diligently inside his studio, unknown to the public. Her masterful portraits, dragons and erotic sketches – sold under the name of her father – are coveted by upper crust Lords and journeyman print makers alike. In public, O-Ei knows and respects her place,” but at home in the studio, she’s as brash and uninhibited as her father. But despite her talent and fiercely independent spirit, O-Ei struggles under the domineering influence of her father and is ridiculed for lacking the life experience that she is attempting to portray in her art. Miss Hokusai‘s lively Edo (present day Tokyo) is filled with yokai spirits, dragons, and conniving tradesmen, while O-Ei’s relationships with her famously impetuous father and blind younger sister provide a powerful emotional underpinning to this rollicking and sumptuously-animated feminist coming-of-age tale.

Shines as an example of one creative soul paying tribute to another! A stellar example of the oft-cited principle that animation is an art form, not a genre.” – Peter Debruge, Variety

 
Gorgeous! A small poetic wonder! That an anime film can explore such complex subjects so beautifully in what’s nominally an artist’s biopic is a blessing in itself.” – Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

Sunday (10/23) 3:30 PM

A child’s angelic face conceals a budding sociopath in the audacious, senses-shattering feature debut from actor Brady Corbet. A powerhouse international cast led by Robert Pattinson and Bérénice Bejo (The Artist) headlines this dark domestic nightmare. Set amidst the turmoil of World War I and its aftermath, it follows the young son of an American diplomat living in France as he learns to manipulate the adults around him-a monstrous coming of age that ominously parallels the rising tide of Fascism in Europe. A stylistically fearless tour-de-force, The Childhood of a Leader reaches fever-pitch delirium thanks to ravishing cinematography and a thunderous score by legendary, boundary-pushing musician Scott Walker.

“Corbet’s inaugural stint behind the camera marks a stunning debut.” -CineVue

 
“With his unusually accomplished directorial debut Childhood of a Leader, Corbet delivers a strange and startling film that reflects the unique trajectory of his career, as well as the influence of the iconoclastic directors with whom he’s already worked.”
