PELHAM, N.Y. -- A screening and discussion of the Oliver Stone 1986 film, "Salvador," is set for Thursday, Oct. 20, at The Picture House Film Center in Pelham.
Critic, author and Oliver Stone expert Matt Zoller Seist will discuss the film with the center's critic-in-residence Marshall Fine after the screening.
Matt Zoller Seitz is the editor-in-chief of RogerEbert.com. He is also the TV critic for New York magazine and Vulture.com and was a finalist for the 1994 Pulitzer Prize in criticism.
A Brooklyn-based writer and filmmaker, Seitz has written, narrated, edited or produced over 100 hours of video essays about cinema history and style for The Museum of the Moving Image and The L Magazine.
He is also the founder and original editor of "The House Next Door", now a part of Slant Magazine, and the publisher of Press Play, a blog of film and TV criticism and video essays.
Over the course of five years, Seitz discussed, debated, and deconstructed the arc of Stone's outspoken, controversial life and career with extraordinary candor, said a release.
Seitz' book "The "Oliver Stone Experience" collects those conversations with anecdotes about Stone’s childhood, Vietnam, his struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder, and his continual struggle to reinvent himself as an artist.
Tickets for the Oct. 20 film/discussion are available at www.thepicturehouse.org or at the box office, 175 Wolfs Lane, Pelham.
The film/discussion begins at 7:30 p.m.
