A. S. Hamrah on The Magnificent Ambersons

Please join n+1 contributor A. S. Hamrah on November 3 in Cambridge, MA, for a screening and discussion of Orson Welles’s 1943 film The Magnificent Ambersons: 

Welles’s Magnificent Ambersons, despite merciless cuts mandated by the studio (some enacted by editor Robert Wise himself), remains a remarkable, gorgeous film about a rich Midwestern family at the turn of the 20th century.

The screening is part of The Brattle Theatre’s Elements of Cinema series and is free and open to the public.

Read Hamrah’s work for n+1 here or his latest on Welles at Bookforum.

8 PM, November 3
The Brattle Theatre
40 Brattle St.
