Free event. Seating is limited.
The Center for Rural Engagement, IU Cinema, and Brown County Playhouse present Love, Gilda (2018), directed by Lisa D’Apolito, followed by a conversation.
Gilda Radner puts a smile on the faces of people who remember watching her as one of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live, where she created and portrayed such now-classic comic characters as Roseanne Roseannadanna, Emily Litella, and Lisa Loopner.
Weaving together her recently discovered audiotapes, Radner reflects on her life and career alongside interviews with friends (Chevy Chase, Lorne Michaels, Laraine Newman, Paul Shaffer and Martin Short), rare home movies, and diaries read by modern-day comedians inspired by her (Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph and Cecily Strong), Love, Gilda opens up a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer whose greatest role was sharing her story.
(2018, Directed by Lisa D'Apolito, Unrated, but recommended for adults, 88 min.)
