CWC Presents: Frankenstein Afterlives
I'm thrilled to be helping to coordinate my first CWC Presents series at the Carsey-Wolf Center. This series, set to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelly's novel, is called Frankenstein: Afterlives. Description from the Carsey-Wolf Center website:
Composed with the urgency and rage of youth, Frankenstein was published in 1818 when its author Mary Shelley was only eighteen years old. To honor the novel’s 200th anniversary and its enduring legacy, the CWC’s fall series is devoted to exploring multiple afterlives of the novel on film. The series will range from classical horror to science fiction to avant-garde experimentation, and will feature a recent biopic and a masterpiece of Spanish cinema. In our series, Frankenstein emerges as a complex tale about gender and sexuality, uncanny families and feminist rage; the films we will present plumb questions about creativity, personal tragedy and the relationship between life and death.
