From Frankenstein in the 30s to modern horror now, children – not to mention adults – are still fascinated by the monstrous. We’ll watch footage of vampires, werewolves, giant apes, and creatures from assorted lagoons, but we’ll also take a few moments to contemplate why we are so fascinated by these beasties.
“Scenes Through the Cinema Lens” is a film retrospective focusing on the performing arts curated by Krin Gabbard, professor of Jazz Studies at Columbia University. He is also the author of Better Git It in Your Soul: An Interpretive Biography of Charles Mingus and Hotter than That: The Trumpet, Jazz, and American Culture.
