Robert Polito and Patricia Patterson: Farber on Film

1/18/2010; 58 minutes

Join distinguished scholars Robert Polito and Patricia Patterson at D.G. Wills Books as they discuss "Farber on Film: The Complete Film Writings of Manny Farber", a collection of Farber's film criticism that spans his early weekly reviews for "The New Republic" and "The Nation" to his later essays (some written in collaboration with his wife, Patricia Patterson). Farber's unusual and pointed prose was credited by many with reinventing film criticism. Later, he devoted himself to his painting and taught film and art at UC San Diego from 1970 to 1987. (#17411)
