“Top Ten Movies that Made an Impact on America” at Woodstock Playhouse”

The Woodstock Film Festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary this fall with a special event at the Woodstock Playhouse. Curated by Bard College film professor Joseph Luzzi, “Ten Films That Changed America” will showcase some of the most influential cinematic masterpieces ever created. These films have not only entertained audiences but also had a significant impact on society, culture, and even politics in the United States.

The presentation will cover 10 notable films, including classics like “Casablanca” (1942), “Rebel Without a Cause” (1955), “The Graduate” (1967), “The Godfather” (1972), “Jaws” (1975), “The China Syndrome” (1979), “Philadelphia” (1993), and “Barbie” (2023), as well as several lesser-known movies. Professor Luzzi will lead the discussion on how these films have shaped American history and culture.

“I look forward to discussing these important films with the Woodstock community,” says Luzzi, who describes the event as a combination of a screening and a lecture. “Studying these films allows us to appreciate the cinematic techniques and compelling stories created by these visionary directors.”

Meira Blaustein, the co-founder and executive director of the Woodstock Film Festival, is thrilled about the upcoming anniversary and the diverse programming it will offer. She believes that “Ten Films That Changed America” is a valuable addition to the festival’s schedule leading up to this year’s event.
