Free Film Series: American Auteur—Jim Jarmusch

February 25 | 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

Jarmusch came to New York City from Akron, Ohio to study at Columbia and NYU’s film school. He would also study film at the Cinematheque Francaise in Paris. He worked as an assistant on LIGHTNING OVER WATER (1980), a film by Nicholas Ray and Wim Wenders, before making his first film, PERMANENT VACATION (1982), made for roughly $15,000. After much hustling, he found a German producer by the name of Otto Grokenberger, who stayed out of his way and provided him with complete artistic control. The result was the highly stimulating STRANGER THAN PARADISE (1984), a film he structured around Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ song, “I Put A Spell On You”, and which would go on to win the Camera D’Or at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival.
