A Legendary Partnership: Forman & Hausman Apr 29, 2011
On Tuesday, May 3rd, at 7:00 pm, in Miller Theatre on Columbia University campus, two filmmaking giants, Milos Forman and Michael Hausman, will present their first work together, Taking Off (1971).
The collaboration between Milos Forman and Michael Hausman is unique within the history of cinema. Never have a director and producer worked together on so many films for so many years. The Columbia University Film Festival is honored to present this event, with a screening of the film that started it all, the rare Taking Off, a brilliant colorful movie that blends comedy and musical.
After the screening, the two filmmakers will meet the audience, ready to share their stories, their movies, and the reasons their collaboration has survived for so long. Film producer and Columbia University School of the Arts Film professor, Ira Deutchman will moderate this in-depth Q&A.
