What you'll learn in this film studies class:

Charlie Chaplin’s timeless 1936 masterpiece, Modern Times (89 min), marks his final outing as the Little Tramp, this time starring as an inept factory worker caught in the cogs and gears of modern industrialization. 

From factory floor to hospital to prison, Chaplin dexterously delivers sly commentary on the brutality of work and class struggle amidst a stream of unforgettable gags. This outdoor screening will be introduced by acclaimed historian Joshua Freeman whose most recent book, Behemoth: A History of the Factory and the Making of the Modern World (Norton, 2017), offers a sweeping, global history of the rise of the factory and its effects on culture and society.

Ticket includes your choice of a glass of beer or wine.
