Filmmakers in person! New prints! Screen star Brooke Adams and Yale filmmaking legend Michael Roemer join us to screen and discuss VENGEANCE IS MINE, their story of a woman facing intersecting family dramas on a trip home to Rhode Island. Later, Roemer’s comedy THE PLOT AGAINST HARRY shows us a small-time gangster adjusting to a new New York after years in prison. Don’t miss this celebration of a filmmaker Bilge Ebiri called “one of the great unsung masters of American cinema.”

Brooke Adams fans: see her in a 35mm Harvard Film Archive print of Terrence Malick’s DAYS OF HEAVEN, presented by Films at the Whitney in HQ L01, 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7.

VENGEANCE IS MINE and THE PLOT AGAINST HARRY are presented in 35mm by Films at the Whitney and the Yale Film Archive with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
