A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Ithaca
Friday, October 10, 7:30 PM
Mark Taper Auditorium, Central Library
Featuring professor Alex Purves (UCLA Department of Classics)
with series curator John Nein, Senior Programmer, Sundance Film Festival
This Friday, October 10, all roads lead to Ithaca at our next installment of Lost & Found at the Movies. As part of the Library Foundation’s month-long L.A. Odyssey Project, Lost & Found series curator John Nein will take us on an epic examination of The Odyssey on film. From George Melies and the earliest days of cinema, to the “sword and sandals” era, to the Coen brothers and Mad Men, what is it about The Odyssey, antiquity, and man’s quest for home that so entices the imagination? Watch this sneak peek below of what’s to come when we look at Homer in Hollywood.
