Medium Cool

Sponsored by: Treasures from the Yale Film Archive

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, followed by a discussion with Professor Beverly Gage. 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.

This “Democracy in America” and “Treasures from the Yale Film Archive” screening is presented by 320 York Humanities, Films at the Whitney, and the Yale Film Study Center with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
