October 20: Wexner Center, Columbus

by admin.

Longtime Village Voice film critic and prolific cultural historian J. Hoberman returns to the Wexner Center for a brief series inspired by his recent book An Army of Phantoms: American Movies and the Making of the Cold War. The book examines the synergy between American politics and popular culture during the first decade of the Cold War, a time marked by Joe McCarthy, a flying saucer scare, postwar prosperity, and a new role for the U.S. in foreign affairs.
