FilmFridays@Five is the External and Academic Events film screening time slot for faculty and students to show films and documentaries related to curriculum and educational programs at NYU Shanghai in the university's auditorium.
In conjunction with upcoming Conversations with the Vice Chancellor featuring actress and theatre director Estelle Parsons, on Friday, September 15, Dean of Arts and Sciences Maria Montoya will introduce and lead a post-screening discussion of the 1967 film phenonmenon Bonnie and Clyde. The film received Academy awards for best supporting actress (Estelle Parsons) and Best Cinematography (Burnett Guffey).
Bonnie and Clyde, the 1967 biographical crime film about Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow and the Barrow gang, is considered a pivotal film in American moviemaking history. One of the first films of the New Hollywood era, the movie broke many cinematic taboos and became a cultural phenomenon.
Bonnie and Clyde takes place during the Great Depression of the 1930s in economically ravaged US where small-time crook Clyde Barrow (Warren Beatty) tries to steal a car and winds up with its owner's daughter, a dissatisfied small-town girl Bonnie Parker (Faye Dunaway). Their crimes quickly spiral from petty theft to bank robbery, but tensions between the couple and the other members of their gang--hapless driver C.W. (Michael J. Pollard), Clyde's suave older brother Buck (Gene Hackman) and Buck's flibbertigibbet wife, Blanche (Estelle Parsons) --could destroy them all. - IMDB
