AIR Time featuring Chris Vognar
AIR Time welcomes guest artist Chris Vognar, Culture Critic for The Dallas Morning News, as moderator David Fisher (Asst. Dir., Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs) interviews him about his life and his “take” on culture and films.
Guests can discover Vognar’s influences and passions when it comes to sharing with the world about what makes for a great film as opposed to just a good one. Do the craftsmanship and art behind a production really make a difference? This Harvard-educated critic may divulge what he thinks of today’s film industry.
The movie for this offering of AIR Time is Network (1976), starring Peter Finch, William Holden, and Faye Dunaway. Paralleling components of today’s world, Network focuses on how a network opts to exploit the rantings about the news media by a former anchor for its own profit. But the real story is of a ratings-hungry executive who will do anything for better numbers.
Following the interview, guests are invited to stay for the movie.
