F.I.L.M. Series: "Suitcase of Love & Shame"
The Hamilton College F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series will present a sneak preview of "Suitcase of Love and Shame" (2012) with director Jane Gillooly. The event includes the screening of the film as well as a discussion with the director. It is free and open to the public.
"Suitcase of Love and Shame" began when Gillooly saw an item, advertised under that name, on Ebay. She bought the suitcase and discovered inside it a collection of memorabilia, mostly audio tapes, sent back and forth between two lovers during the early 1960s. These tapes, as re-presented by Gillooly, become a fascinating window into the social realities of late 1950s and early 1960s American culture. Gillooly teaches filmmaking at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
