Dustin Morrow on Kathleen Turner

March 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

On Friday, March 8, at 7 pm, Prof. Dustin Morrow will discuss his new book, Kathleen Turner on Acting: Conversations about Film, Television, and Theater, a collaborative book written with the legendary, iconic actress. He will discuss the challenges that face film actors and offer a perspective on film acting from the point of view of the director and the editor.

Dustin Morrow is an Emmy-winning filmmaker, bestselling author, and professor of film at Portland State University. As a media artist, his works frequently explore issues of and relationships between landscape/space and personal, communal and cultural identities; the relationship between music and the moving image; intersections of traditional cinema and new media; the actor-director relationship; and genre filmmaking.

Prof. Morrow is the author of the 2018 book Kathleen Turner on Acting: Conversations about Film, Television, and Theater. The book is structured around a series of conversations Morrow conducted with the legendary actress about subjects such as the relationship between an actor and a director, the preparation an actor must do for a role, and the differences between stage and screen acting. The book was endorsed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Sofia Coppola and has been featured on Salon, Good Morning America and CBS This Morning.

Prof. Morrow also recently finished the film Black Pool, a feature-length thriller that he wrote and directed, which tells a taut revenge story set against the backdrop of the political conflict in Northern Ireland. The film was shot partially in Dublin and Belfast, and was picked up at the Cannes Film Festival for distribution in 2019. Learn more about that film at its website, www.blackpoolfilm.com.
