Wide Angle series starts this Wednesday with Hal Ashby's The Landlord

April 28, 2013

Ragtag Cinema has a new series called Wide Angle on the first four Wednesdays in May at 6:30. All great films you haven't seen from the 70s with the aim of looking at gentrification and race relations and how far or not far we have come with a lively discussion after. The first one looks hilarious: The Landlord, directed by Hal Ashby (Harold and Maude), starring a very young Beau Bridges. The series is curated by Chris Boeckmann (Ragtag's Homebrewed, Neither/Nor, Passport Series), so you know it's going to be good.

Film writer Steven Boone discusses Hal Ashby's overlooked comedy THE LANDLORD, screening at 6:30PM this Wednesday as a part of our Wide Angle series.
