Film series expands on art exhibit themes
DeKALB – The Northern Illinois University Art Museum will present a film series in conjunction with its exhibition “On Watching and Being Seen.” The exhibition focuses on themes of watching and of being watched.
The Alfred Hitchcock classic “Rear Window” will be screened at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23, at The Egyptian Theatre, 135 N. Second St. in DeKalb. In this 1954 film starring James Stewart and Grace Kelly, a wheelchair-bound man spies on his neighbors from his apartment window and becomes convinced one of them has committed a murder. After the film, NIU professors Scott Balcerzak and Tim Ryan will lead a discussion. Balcerzak regularly teaches a course on Hitchcock’s films. The film is rated PG. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students, seniors and members of the art museum.
At 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, “Marwencol,” written and produced by Jeff Malmberg, will be shown in Montgomery Auditorium on the NIU campus. In this unrated 2010 film, after a vicious attack leaves him brain damaged and broke, Mark Hogancamp seeks recovery in a small-scale World War II-era town he creates in his backyard.
