Medium Cool – Treasures from the Yale Film Archive | September 29 | 7 – 9 pm
To mark the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, we invite you to join us for Haskell Wexler’s MEDIUM COOL. Robert Forster stars as a TV news cameraman in what Vincent Canby described as “a film of tremendous visual impact, a kind of cinematic Guernica, a picture of America in the process of exploding into fragmented bits of hostility, suspicion, fear, and violence.” Featuring the music of Love and the Mothers of Invention, MEDIUM COOL was added to the National Film Registry in 2003. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.
A presentation of the Yale Film Study Center and Films at the Whitney with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.

The Yale Film Study Center is pleased to present Treasures from the Yale Film Archive, a series of classic and contemporary films from around the world shown in their original 35mm format as they were meant to be seen. These screenings are always free and open to the public.
