Jaws: The Making of a Masterpiece
July 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
Stephen Spielberg’s 1975 blockbuster JAWS, based on the novel by Peter Benchley, is considered one of the greatest films ever made. Its release was regarded as a watershed moment in motion picture history, becoming the first bona fide blockbuster. But the film is also a cinematic masterpiece.
Please join Wilton Library for a special discussion with Greg Blank. This session will include behind the scenes clips for a breakdown of the production process, and analysis of the film’s cinematic qualities, through clips of the film itself, to examine what has created the film’s enduring legacy. A Long Island based filmmaker, film historian, and lecturer, Blank has over 15 years of experience as a producer, director, cinematographer, and editor.
