Thursday, March 11, 2010 - 7:30 pm | Cost: FREE

Trailers Schmailers, curated by Jenni Olson, is a feature-length compilation of Jewish movie trailers from the Marx Brothers to Schindler’s List. A mixture of humor, social commentary, and powerful drama, these previews offer a unique insight into the relationship between Hollywood’s studio marketing departments, the growing visibility of Jews in American life, and how Jews have been portrayed on screen.

Through her talk and screening of trailer highlights, Olson will present a crash-course in Jewish film history from 1937 to 1997.
