Can’t Get That Monster Out of My Mind: Joan Didion and Cinema
Copresented by the Hammer Museum and the UCLA Film & Television Archive
Cinema, and Hollywood in particular, casts a long shadow across the writings of Joan Didion. This series seeks to measure its reach in a variety of ways, considering her work as a screenwriter and her influences, as well those directors who share a subject with Didion but diverge, sometimes dramatically, from her unflinching perspective.
