The New School's John L. Tishman Auditorium, 63 Fifth Avenue
Don’t miss this momentous opportunity to be part of a provocative and spirited discussion between Academy Award®–nominated actor and producer Salma Hayek, Golden Globe and Tony Award–winning actor, musician and author John Lithgow, and film and television director Miguel Arteta. The trio will be discussing their upcoming film “Beatriz at Dinner,” where Hayek stars as Beatriz, an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, who has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a health practitioner in Southern California. Doug Strutt, played by Lithgow, is a real estate developer whose cutthroat tactics have made him a self–made, self–satisfied billionaire. When these two polar opposites meet at a dinner party, their worlds collide and neither is ever the same. Join us for an evening of provocative discourse centered around Arteta’s timely allegory set in the age of Trump, tackling several pressing issues, including racism, social inequality and immigration.
