For $35, today’s deal gets you two tickets to Film Streams’ event, Feature III: An Evening with Steven Soderbergh at the Holland Performing Arts Center on Douglas Street on Sunday, February 20 at 6:30 p.m. (a $70 value).
Academy Award-winning director of Erin Brockovich and Traffic, Steven Soderbergh discusses his filmmaking career with Kurt Andersen, author and host of Public Radio International's Studio 360, during this arts-foundation fundraising event. Soderbergh’s unique filmic perspective stems from a prolific directorial career, with numerous projects garnering Oscar nominations and awards, as well as induction into the Library of Congress's National Film Registry. Omaha native and Academy Award–winning writer-director of Sideways Alexander Payne kicks off the evening with an introduction to the presentation.
Film Streams is a nonprofit organization that opened the Ruth Sokolof Theater in 2007 in order to present films to the community. The theater honors the passionate and inspirational Omaha educator Ruth Sokolof, whose legacy includes a preschool for visually impaired students in addition to the theater bearing her name. In honor of Soderbergh's involvement, the Ruth Sokolof Theater will present a six-week film series showcasing the director's work (including two favorites selected by Soderbergh himself) through March 24.
Film Streams has generated lots of press, including a feature in the New York Times. The Morning Blend featured the upcoming Evening With Steven Soderbergh. Thirteen Yelpers give Film Streams an average of 4.5 stars, and six Google Mappers give it an average of 4.8 stars.
