This annual film series returns for an examination of Kansas City’s own home-grown cinema auteur, Robert Altman.

After 20 years in industrial films and television, Altman became an “overnight” success with this black comedy about rebellious, wise-cracking Army surgeons working and playing at a field hospital. Though set in the Korean War, everyone who saw it knew it was really about Vietnam. With Elliott Gould and Donald Sutherland.

Rated R; 116 minutes.

Presenters: Psychoanalyst Alice Brand-Bartlett, PhD., and Tom Poe, Ph.D., UMKC professor of communications and film studies.

Co-sponsored by the Greater Kansas City and Topeka Psychoanalytic Center.
