SaturdaySCREENINGS – Cradle Will Rock (1995)
October 3, 2009 - 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Directed by Tim Robbins
Art is never dangerous — unless it tells the truth
Even as labor strikes erupt across Depression-era-era America, New York City launches its own cultural revolution. Orson Welles, Diego Rivera, John Houseman, and other young artists tackle government attempts to squelch a “radical’ musical drama. This film captures the often-volatile dynamic between art and politics in 1930s America — and the gulf between privilege and poverty.
Joan Cusack, John Cusack, Bill Murray, Vanessa Redgrave, Susan Sarandon, John Turturo, Emily Watson, Cherry Jones, Hank Azaria.
