Zolberg Institute Presents:
Casablanca at 75: A refugee story
April 04th, 7pm-10pm, Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Room 202, 55 West 13th Street.
Casablanca is one of classical Hollywood’s greatest romances, but its underlying story concerns the plight of European refugees, an unusually timely, urgent theme for today.
This event, which focuses on the refugee theme of the film, includes a screening of Casablanca and a conversation with Noah Isenberg, Lang professor of Culture and Media and author of We’ll Always Have Casablanca: The Life, Legend, and Afterlife of Hollywood’s Most Beloved Movie (Norton, 2017), and Alexander Aleinikoff, director of the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility at The New School. Moderated by A.O. Scott of The New York Times.
Presented by the Department of Culture and Media at Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility, and the Department of Liberal Studies at The New School for Social Research.
