Special Screening at Film Streams
On Wednesday, September 16, 2015, Film Streams and Opera Omaha will present a one-time screening of WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN at the Ruth Sokolof Theater, 1340 Mike Fahey Street, followed by a panel discussion.
In Pedro Almodóvar’s 1988, neon-hued comedy, our heroine Pepa is having a rough day. Having just found out that her longtime lover, Ivan, is breaking things off, she plans her own death. But her suicide is continuously interrupted by a parade of harried characters, all somehow linked to Ivan. High camp and zany antics combine to make this one of Almodóvar’s most beloved films.
Post-film discussion with opera director Michael Shell and Spanish film scholar Dr. Steven Torres will be moderated by Opera Omaha General Director Roger Weitz. When creating the concept for Opera Omaha’s October 2015 production of Rossini’s “The Barber of Seville,” director Michael Shell drew inspiration from this film. Torres, a faculty member of UNO’s Office of Latino/Latin American Studies (OLLAS), has written several articles on the work of Almodóvar.
Tickets for this screening are available at the box office inside Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater or online here.
