Join us for a talk with Susan Seidelman about her new memoir, “Desperately Seeking Something.” To assure your copy, books can be preordered HERE.

We’ll screen one of Susan’s films and a Q&A will follow, along with a post screening reception and book signing. Books will be available for purchase at the event.

Her memoire “Desperately Seeking Something”, is the funny and insightful first-person story of the trailblazing movie director of the 80s and 90s whose fearless punk drama, “Smithereens” became the first American indie film to compete at Cannes, and smash hit “Desperately Seeking Susan” led to a four-decade career in film.

We will start the evening with a screening of “Smithereens”, the story of wild teen Wren (Susan Berman) who trades New Jersey for New York City, where she hopes to join what’s left of the punk rock culture. She spends time hanging out with Paul (Brad Rinn), another young city transplant, but he’s too safe for Wren’s tastes, which run to narcissistic rockers. She finds one of these in Eric (Richard Hell), who’s about to cut a record in Los Angeles. Before long, Wren is planning to accompany Eric when he heads west, but it’s soon clear she’s put trust in the wrong person.
