Long, Long Way: Race and History in/on Film

Saturday, February 29, 2020 | 3:00pm

This panel discussion is part of our Long, Long Way Film Series. Learn more about A Long, Long Way Film Series here.

Glory (1989) and Harriet (2019) take place in overlapping time periods, and are filmed 30 years apart. Greg Garrett and David Terry discuss what it takes to film a period in history and how these films do this well (or poorly) or differently from each other. How does Hollywood adapt a story for moviemaking, and how might that influence our experience or understanding?
