Visiting Filmmakers

Today’s most engaging and inventive directors, producers, and film professionals join us to introduce their work and answer questions after most screenings.

Named "Best Film Made in New York" at the Tribeca Film Festival, The Treatment is the debut fiction feature from a well-known director of documentaries.

Rudavsky last visited the Wexner Center in 2004 to introduce his film Hiding and Seeking; he is also the director of A Life Apart: Hasidism in America (1997). The story, based on the novel by Daniel Menaker, follows an emotionally paralyzed young teacher who seeks help from a maniacal Argentine Freudian therapist after breaking up with his girlfriend. While he tries to fend off his therapist-from-Hell, the young man’s life becomes even more complicated after he meets a socialite widow who introduces him to Manhattan’s upwardly mobile circles. Starring Ian Holm, Famke Janssen, and Chris Eigeman. (86 mins., 35mm)

Join us after the film at a casual reception in the café area. Wexner Center and Melton Center members are also invited to come early for a private reception with the filmmaker from 1 to 2 PM.

Cosponsored by Ohio State’s Melton Center for Jewish Studies.
