Award-winning film producer and Emerson College alumna Sarah Green ’81 will return to campus via Skype following an advance screening of Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups on Thursday, March 3.
The screening will be held at 7:00 pm in the Bright Family Screening Room at the Paramount Center, after which Green, the film’s producer, will join the audience remotely to talk about the film and answer questions.
Knight of Cups, starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, and Natalie Portman, follows a writer (Bale) through the mansions, beaches, and clubs of Los Angeles and Las Vegas, as he searches for love and himself with six women, among them his physician ex-wife (Blanchett) and a woman he wronged (Portman).
Anna Feder, programming manager and faculty in the Department of Visual and Media Arts, said film students and anyone interested in the industry should not miss the chance to hear Green speak.
“She’s such an extraordinary talent among our alumni; you can see the lengthy resume she has and all the extraordinary films she’s worked on—she’s just a wealth of knowledge,” Feder said.
Green has produced a number of Malick’s films throughout her long career, including The Tree of Life, which won the Palme D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011; To the Wonder; The New World; un upcoming untitled film; and the IMAX documentary Voyage of Time.
She has also worked extensively with David Mamet, producing State and Main, The Winslow Boy, The Spanish Prisoner, Oleanna, and the Michael Corrente-directed American Buffalo.
She is in post-production on Jeff Nichols’ Loving, about the interracial couple behind the landmark 1967 Supreme Court case. She was the producer of Nichols’ Take Shelter; Mud; and Midnight Special, which will screen at SXSW in Austin, Texas, next month, alongside the documentary Best and Most Beautiful Things, a documentary produced by Emerson alumnus and Emerson Los Angeles founding director Kevin Bright ’76.
Feder said the screening is free and open to students, faculty, staff. Students can pick up one ticket with their ID any time after 5:00 pm the day of the screening. Faculty and staff can get two tickets with an ID up until 6:45 pm.
Seats reserved for alumni have already filled, according to Alumni Relations Director Kevin Fleming, but alumni can be added to a wait list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
