Nashville HalPhillipWalker

This film is part of the Ackland Film Forum’s “American Comedy, American Democracy” series, devoted to the ways that Hollywood films have depicted the problems and possibilities of democracy. Co-presented with the UNC Global Cinema Studies Program.

Over five days leading up to a political rally for Replacement Party candidate Hal Phillip Walker, the lives of various people connected to Nashville’s music industry intersect. The myriad characters represent a cross-section of America in the wake of JFK’s assassination and under the shadow of the Vietnam war.

This film will be introduced by Priscilla Layne (UNC-Chapel Hill, German).

Students free with valid university or high school ID, $4 for all others. Tickets are available at the Varsity Theatre Box Office.
