O.J.: Made in America
With director Ezra Edelman in conversation with Rembert Browne
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for pre-screening reception. Light refreshments will be served.
Dir. Ezra Edelman. 2016. Digital projection. Program duration: 215 mins. It is perhaps the defining cultural tale of twentieth-century America, one that centers around two of our country’s greatest fixations: race and celebrity. O.J.: Made in America explores these themes in tracing a personal journey, from how Orenthal James Simpson first became a football star, to why the country fell in love with him off the field, to his being accused of murdering his ex-wife, his subsequent acquittal, and later conviction for another crime. A saga of race, celebrity, media, violence, and the criminal justice system, it continues to fascinate, polarize, and even develop new chapters two decades later. From Peabody and Emmy-award winning director Ezra Edelman, O.J.: Made in America is a five-part production coming in June 2016 from ESPN Films’s “30 for 30” series. This special preview screening will feature the first two episodes of the series, followed by a conversation with director Ezra Edelman and writer Rembert Browne.
