OPENING NIGHT: Previewing 'Lincoln'

"Lincoln"
Q&A with production designer Rick Carter
October 23, 7 PM
Academy of Television Arts & Sciences
5220 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood

Get ready for a truly spectacular season of upcoming films! The KCET Cinema Series heads back to the NoHo arts district this Tuesday, October 23rd, for our Fall series at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Kicking off the series with a veritable bang on opening night is the highly anticipated Steven Spielberg epic "Lincoln," starring Hollywood royalty Daniel Day-Lewis, as the titular man himself, and Sally Field, as wife Mary Todd Lincoln.

Based on Doris Kearns Goodwin's Lincoln biography "Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln," the film centers around the last four months of the President's life as he tirelessly works toward an end to the Civil War, the reunification of the country and the permanent outlawing of slavery through the contentious ratification of the 13th amendment. The film also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones, John Hawkes, and James Spader.

Academy Award winning production designer and art director Rick Carter ("Forrest Gump," "War Horse," "Avatar") joins host Pete Hammond for a Q & A after the screening!
