Preview Screening of The Current War with Michael Shannon and Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

Michael Shannon and Annette Insdorf

Moderator Annette Insdorf will interview Michael Shannon and Alfonso Gomez-Rejon after a preview screening of what she calls "one of the best films of the year—a beautifully made historical epic that conveys the excitement of scientific ideas tested and realized in life-changing ways."

Businessman George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), inventor Thomas Edison (Benedict Cumberbatch), and immigrant genius Nikolai Tesla (Nicholas Hoult) compete to bring electricity to the world, sparking one of the first great American corporate feuds. Co-starring Tom Holland as Edison's secretary, The Current War: The Director's Cut is a new and enhanced version of a film that had brief festival exposure in 2017; it will be released theatrically on October 25.
