Art, Sex, Loneliness, Liberation, and the Making of Midnight Cowboy, with Journalist Glenn Frankel and Film Historian Rebecca Prime

 Tuesday, April 20 at 4:30 p.m. ET / 1:30 p.m. PT

In an era when a new wave of movies pushed the boundaries of mainstream filmmaking, Midnight Cowboy stands out as the riskiest, most unconventional, and most successful of them all. Glenn’s new book, Shooting Midnight Cowboy: Art, Sex, Loneliness, Liberation, and the Making of a Dark Classic, explores the making of the only X-rated film to win a Best Picture Oscar and offers a window onto the creative ferment and social unrest that gripped New York and America in the 1960s: the rise of gay liberation, the treatment of sexual themes in popular culture, and the role of Jewish artists such as director John Schlesinger and star Dustin Hoffman. Glenn, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, will be in conversation with film historian and scholar Rebecca Prime, managing editor of Film Quarterly.
