One Day University Film School Presents: "Norman" and a Discussion with Roger Berkowitz

Location: NYC
9:15 am – 12:00 pm
One Day University Film School Presents: "Norman"

Is world history changed by the machinations of great persons or small acts by anonymous people? Do loyalty and honor still matter in public life? Can a small act of kindness lead to a life-changing friendship? Can a powerful politician hold on to his soul? Is power as sweet as it seems? Or must power in the end lead to corruption?

These are the questions that inspire "Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer," a 2017 film written and directed by Joseph Cedar and starring Richard Gere. "Norman" raises eternal and timely questions about power, insiders, and outsiders. In its complexity, the movie reflects on clichés about Jewish Machers and political players. Join us for a discussion of struggle between anonymity and the will to power led by Bard College Professor Roger Berkowitz.
