Midwest Independent Film Festival >> First Tuesdays: HESBURGH, Sept. 4th! (Chicago, IL. )



HESBURGH: Sept 4th!
MIDWEST PREMIERE OF HESBURGH: Sept. 4th!

We're thrilled to announce the MIDWEST PREMIERE of HESBURGH, a feature-length documentary film from award-winning filmmakers Patrick Creadon and Christine O'Malley (WORDPLAY, I.O.U.S.A.), which examines the challenges and triumphs of one of the most influential leaders in American history.


Timely in today’s current social and political landscape, HESBURGH explores the life and work of Father Theodore Hesburgh and offers a unique glimpse at more than fifty years of American history as seen through the eyes of the long-time president of the University of Notre Dame and highly influential civil rights leader-- who also happened to be America's most well-known Catholic priest. Educator, civil rights champion, advisor to presidents, envoy to popes, theologian and activist, Hesburgh was called on by countless world leaders in critical moments in modern history to tackle the most challenging issues of the day.

Throughout his work, Hesburgh remained a leader armed with a fierce intelligence, a quick wit and an unyielding moral compass-- a timeless example of bipartisan leadership in today’s increasingly polarized times. He built a reputation as a savvy political operator with a penchant for bridging the divide between even bitter enemies.

As ever, the evening will begin at 6 p.m. at Landmark Century Cinema (2828 N. Clark St., Chicago) for a cocktail reception, followed by our monthly producer panel at 6:30 p.m. Screenings will being at 7:30 p.m., and following the screening, a Q&A will take place with the filmmakers. 

See you September 4!

WITCH
Written by Jen SilvermanInspired by The Witch of Edmonton by Rowley, Dekker & Ford 
Directed by Marti Lyons 

Performances Begin September 26

Performed in the Gillian Theatre 

ABOUT THE PLAY 

Mischief is afoot in the sleepy village of Edmonton and the fate of the world is at stake in this smart modern fable. When the emotionally conflicted son of the local lord and an ambitious newcomer come into conflict, help presents itself to both of them in the same guise—as the Devil himself. But while these two young men take advantage of the Devil’s bargain to accomplish their own questionable ends, someone else in town stands her ground—Elizabeth, an outcast whom everyone believes to be a witch.

Rising playwright Jen Silverman boldly transforms this classic play by Jacobean playwrights William RowleyThomas Dekker and John Ford, using a contemporary lens to make the machinations of the distant past strikingly relevant to today. Directed by Marti Lyons (The Mystery of Love & Sex) in the intimate Gillian Theatre, this wickedly funny, slyly subversive play will captivate you with the question: would you know what to ask for if the Devil came knocking on your door?
