The Modern School of Film and School of Visual Arts presents the most recent installment of MSF’s critically-acclaimed series lN:PICTURES, wherein iconic guests discuss three films that have most-influenced their life and work.
This installment features legendary filmmaker Ken Burns , the creative force behind the award-winning documentaries The Civil WarBaseballJazz, and the recent Jackie Robinson.  Burns will discuss three films that inspired his journey as a force-of-nature film artist and recorder of the ever-moving American experience.  Those films include Buster Keaton’s The General, Carol Reed’s The Third Man, and Tom McCarthy’s The Station Agent.
IN:PICTURES will include clips of each film, along with an in-depth discourse with Mr. Burns on how cinema has shaped both his work and the continued legacy of this master of genre, form, and modern storytelling.
