Frankenstein: Book To Movie Screening and Discussion
Saturday October 27, 2018
2:00 PM until 5:00 PM
Join us for a screening of Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein followed by a discussion led by Mark Edwards.
Director James Whale's 1931 adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein created our iconic image of Frankenstein's monster. It was also one of the first sound films to convince the studios that there were profits in scares. The sequel, The Bride of Frankenstein was one of cinema's earliest horror-comedies. This program will screen both films and discuss the works as adaptations of Shelley's novel, and take a look at the craft of one of early cinema's most talented filmmakers.
Mark Edwards teaches media and film studies at Sacred Heart University, and Science Fiction Writing for Lesley University's MFA in Creative Writing. He writes stories and plays, and occasional propaganda for sinister corporate entities.
This program is part of the Library's Still Alive! 200 Years of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. The program is free thanks to the Friends of the Library. Please register.
