Kansas City

Series curator Tayler Montague will introduce the 7pm screening.

A pair of kidnappings expose the complex power dynamics within the corrupt and unpredictable workings of 1930s Kansas City.

“Altman loves to explode movie genres, and his script, co-written with Frank Barhydt, fuses the classic ’30s screwball comedy and crime film.” – Jack Kroll, Newsweek

“As always with Altman, the ensemble excels, with every character perfectly played, all fates cleverly connected, and all action overlaid with a thumping jazz score.” – Kevin Maher, Times (UK)

"Kansas City is a wonderful film, done with all Altman's offbeat virtuosity, maverick humor and creative daring -- plus the acid nip that runs through all his recent works."
Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

This film is part of the His Song: A Harry Belafonte Retrospective series.
