Waiting for Beckett—A Portrait of Samuel Beckett

November 13, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


This spellbinding profile of the Nobel Prize–winning author and playwright offers an illuminating look into one of the 20th century’s greatest literary minds. A blend of rare archival footage of the famously publicity-shy Beckett, performances of his work, interviews with friends and scholars, and excerpts from his letters provide intriguing and often humorous insight into his life and art.

Directed and produced for Global Village by John L. Reilly, produced by Melissa Shaw-Smith. 1994. 86 minutes.
