"Citizen Kane"

Civic Discourse Series film screening

Noon Saturday, Feb. 14, 2009
Boston Athenæum
10½ Beacon St., Boston

Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane (1941) is an Oscar-winning biography of newspaper baron Charles Foster Kane (in essence, a thinly veiled portrait of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst), who becomes one of America’s most influential men.

The film, shown through the Civic Discourse Series: Media and Democracy, will be introduced by David Reeder, visiting assistant professor in the Communication and Journalism Department at Suffolk University.

Reeder earned his BFA from the University of Kentucky in 1985, specializing in photography and sculpture, and worked as a camera assistant for 20 years, perfecting his craft as a filmmaker. His credits include Driving Miss Daisy, Fried Green Tomatoes, Ace Ventura 2, RoboCop3 and the NBC television series "In the Heat of the Night."

Reservations: 617-720-7600.
