November Actions. 1970/2017. Directed by Richard Leacock 

76 min.
Richard Leacock was a prolific filmmaker who pioneered documentary styles known as Cinéma Vérité and Direct Camera by using small, mobile, hand-held cameras to capture moments of immediacy and spontaneity. He was a seminal figure in developing innovative approaches to nonfictional filmmaking, co-founding and teaching at MIT’s film school from 1968 through 1989. November Actions features four sequences from his unfinished documentary that focused on the Anti-Vietnam War actions on campus in 1969. 

All programs are free and open to the general public. RSVPs are required. RSVP here.
