Date: Jan 2, 2018
Join us for a screening of 20th Century Fox film The Post followed by a conversation and Q&A with screenwriters Liz Hannah (The Post) and Josh Singer (The Post, Spotlight), moderated by Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton, World Trade Center).
About the film:
Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post, a drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light.
The proceeds for this special screening will go toward the Foundation’s Volunteer & Mentorship Program, which connects WGAw members with young writers from underserved communities.
Screening starts at 7:00pm. Doors will open at 6:30pm. Parking will be validated.
