The Bonfire of the Vanities: Tom Wolfe and Preet Bharara with Thane Rosenbaum

Oct 27, 2015

This comedy-drama starring Tom Hanks, Melanie Griffith and Bruce Willis explores the mix of ambition, racism, politics and greed in 1980s New York, when being a Master of the Universe defined the very meaning of Wall Street excess and entitlement.

Twenty-five years on, Tom Wolfe reflects on the novel and film, and United States Attorney Preet Bharara offers his view on its continued relevance.

This event is a co-production between 92Y and the Forum on Law, Culture & Society, for the 10th Annual FOLCS Film Festival.
