This season, The Screen at Contemporary presents Radical Delusions; a series of eight classic films exploring the world of unbound worship, blind faith, dangerous ideas and violent reverence. Join us.
An ambitious radio producer discovers folk singer Lonesome Rhodes and sets to make him a star. What begins as an everyman talking to “the people” becomes a circus of fame, celebrity, and ego. Kazan sets this up like a fable of America Dream and haunting premonition of what happens when one voice has the ear of a nation.
