Quantcast

Film screening: Evocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie

eventdetail

Before entire networks were built on populist personalities and before reality morphed into a TV genre, the masses fixated on a single, sociopathic star: controversial talk-show host Morton Downey Jr.

In the late '80s, Downey tore apart the traditional talk format by turning debate of current issues into a gladiator pit. His blow-smoke-in-your-face style drew a rabid cult following, but also the title "Father of Trash Television." Evocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie dissects the mind and motivation of television's most notorious agitator.

A talk-balk with co-director/co-producer Seth Kramer follows the screening. Guests will enjoy complimentary beer courtesy of Saint Arnold Brewing Co.
