This 8-week series addresses ‘The Four Freedoms’ that President Franklin Roosevelt articulated during the Great Depression. These themes have resonated for over 80 years, and retain particular relevance in our own time.
Each movie is introduced by Mark Ethan Toporek, who also leads a post-screening discussion. He is a member of the Actors’ Studio, who has appeared in films including The Secret Lives of Dentists, The Confession and Lesser Prophets. He has been presenting the Film Series at 92Y since 2003 and at the Queens Museum since 1998.
This film series takes place in the second-floor theater and is free with Museum admission and open to the general public (with a special invitation to seniors).
