Steve Bannon in Errol Morris' film, "American Dharam."

As part of our monthly film series Through the Lens, we’ll examine Academy Award-winning documentarian Errol Morris’ latest film, American Dharma with Dr. David Resha, associate professor of Film Studies at Oxford College of Emory University.

Academy Award-winning documentarian Errol Morris’ latest film, a portrait of former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, struggled to get distribution following its premiere at the Venice Film Festival earlier this year. Morris has been understandably resentful, but equally understandable is the reticence around giving a platform, however critical, to Bannon. As part of our monthly film series Through the Lens, we’ll examine Morris' film American Dharma, and explore what place it has in our divided political climate.   

GUEST

  • Dr. David Resha, associate professor of Film Studies at Oxford College of Emory University
