Film Society of Lincoln Center to Hold Norman Jewison Retrospective

The producer and director will participate in a Q&A session with Olympia Dukakis to discuss "Moonstruck."

The Film Society of Lincoln Center will mount the first major New York retrospective of the work of producer/director Norman Jewison at the Walter Reade Theater from May 25-30.

Jewison, whose credits range from In the Heat of the Night to The Thomas Crown Affair to A Soldier’s Story, will attend several of the screenings and will participate in a Q&A with Olympia Dukakis on May 28 to discuss their film Moonstruck.

Other colleagues of the directors who will attend screenings include Lee Grant and lyricist Sheldon Harnick.

“In American mainstream movie history there is a small handful of producer/directors that can lay claim to an extraordinarily immense, eclectic, and successful body of work. There is no doubt that Norman Jewison is a prominent member of that club,” programming associate Josh Strauss said.
