Author and pop culture essayist Chuck Klosterman discussed Peter Watkins's 1967 black comedy 'Privilege' at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's monthly Print Screen series.
Bridging the worlds of cinema and literature, the recurring series Print Screen invites our favorite authors to present films that complement and have inspired their work, with discussions and book signings to follow screenings.
To mark the recent release of But What If We’re Wrong? (Blue Rider Press), a collection of interviews with a variety of creative thinkers interwoven with the type of high-wire humor and nontraditional analysis only Chuck Klosterman would dare to attempt, the author joins us for a screening of Peter Watkins’s politically charged black comedy Privilege, followed by a conversation and book signing.
Klosterman is the best-selling author of seven nonfiction books (including Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs and I Wear the Black Hat) and two novels (Downtown Owl and The Visible Man). He has written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, GQ, Esquire, Spin, The Guardian, The Believer, Billboard, The A.V. Club, and ESPN. Klosterman served as the Ethicist for The New York Times Magazine for three years, appeared as himself in the LCD Soundsystem documentary Shut Up and Play the Hits, and was an original founder of the website Grantland with Bill Simmons.
