Ida Noyes Hall, Max Palevsky Cinema, University of Chicago
Filmmaker and video artist Tom Kalin will introduce and field questions regarding Swoon, his provocative sexually charged redux of the Leopold and Loeb murder story, two University of Chicago students who conspired to murder their 13-year-old neighbor in 1924, in arrogant defiance of getting caught. This is a University of Chicago premier! See the film at the scene of the crime! Kalin is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Swoon was premiered at the 1992 New York Film Festival, and won the 1992 Sundance Institute award for cinematography.
This is part of a series of lectures and events titled The Personal and Political in Recent Art.
