A CHILD IS WAITING
March 1 @ 7:30 pm
A CHILD IS WAITING 1963, 102 minutes, B&W, 35mm | Written by Abby Mann; directed by John Cassavetes; produced by Stanley Kramer; with Burt Lancaster, Judy Garland, and Gena Rowlands
Includes an introductory conversation with 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards John Cassavetes Award Nominees
Just prior to the Film Independent Spirit Awards, we will recognize the nominees for this year’s John Cassavetes Award, which is bestowed on filmmakers who have managed the extraordinary accomplishment of completing a feature film with a budget of $500,000 or less. The nominees will take part in a Q&A about what was involved in bringing their work to fruition. The conversation will be followed by a screening of the famously independent-minded Cassavetes’s 1963 feature A Child Is Waiting, a look at the world of mentally challenged children (roles for which the director fought to use non-actors). A Child Is Waiting stars Burt Lancaster and Judy Garland and was produced by social activist Stanley Kramer.
