Good history doesn’t always make for good drama. Share your feelings about the best (and worst) portrayals of the past on screen through clips and conversation with our panel of local filmmakers and historians.

What happens when Hollywood defines how we think about history? Can we create an historically accurate film without taking dramatic license? From exaggerations to complete fabrication, our perceptions of the past are often changed by what we see on screen. Through clips and conversation, this event will look at the good, the bad, and the ugly of historical cinema to understand how narratives are altered for artistic or dramatic effect.
