Citizen Kane: What Makes it Great?

At age 25, Orson Welles directed and starred in what some would say is Hollywood's greatest film. Made nearly 80 years ago, Kane was immediately recognized for its technical brilliance and creative energy. This lecture will describe the making of this great film, its creators, and the controversies behind it. Although the talk will include many clips from the film to demonstrate its innovations, lecture attendants are urged to watch the film beforehand if they can.
