PASSING — REBECCA HALL IN CONVERSATION

566

 

I think in any family that has a legacy of passing, it’s very tricky, because, sadly, you inherit all of the shame and none of the pride… I was in these fancy private English boarding schools and everyone gets picked up in Range Rovers, y’know? I’m going to and fro in a taxi and everyone looks at my mother and it’s like, “Ooooh! Isn’t she exotic!” — Rebecca Hall

Hall is in town for a series of American Cinematheque screenings and conversations.

PASSING—the actor’s directorial debut, based on the 1929 novel by Nella Larsen—will screen on Sunday in Santa Monica, followed by a conversation with Hall and Claudia Puig.

And starting this weekend in Los Feliz, the writer-director presents a series of early- and mid-twentieth-century films that share some of the themes of perception and identification addressed in PASSING. See links below for details.
